Annie & The Hot Club in homage to the Hot Club genre (Django Reinhardt gypsy-swing) bring fiery guitar and violin soloing on repertoire from the 1930s and ’40s such as Honeysuckle Rose and Sweet Georgia Brown – and to top it off, the perky storyteller and hard-swinging singer, Annie. Nashville native vocalist Annie Sellick was voted Best Jazz Artist by readers of the Nashville Scene five years in a row, and has since toured all over the world and performed and/or recorded with many of her musical heroes including Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing, Tommy Emmanuel and jazz organ royalty Joey DeFrancesco.
The Hot Club of Nashville is led by Britain-born Richard Smith and rhythm guitarist (and killer harp player), Pat Bergeson. Fiddle player, Aaron Till, and bassist, Charlie Chadwick, round out the group. They’ve performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, as well as abroad including the Tommy Emmanuel Guitar Festival in Rietberg/Germany and Poland. They are a mainstay at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention as well as The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.
These are some of the most talented musicians in Nashville (or anywhere!). It’s a magically fun musical experience… they’re the real deal. It is a fun loving, story-telling, toe tapping, tear jerking, sit back and enjoy experience for the listener. Hope you can join us!
