From customers:

Jazz A, 4 years ago

For lovers of the classic Stephane Grappelli - Django Reinhardt approach, this is right up there amongst the best in the UK. " ​Paul Bream, Jazz Alert

Audience H, 4 years ago

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. The music from Emma and her Hot Club was superb - I have never heard anyone get as close to the sound of Reinhardt and Grappelli whilst still maintaining their own identity.
