 Hot Club of Baltimore is returning once again to Sotto Sopra Restaurant, considered the premier gypsy jazz group of the region, featuring guitarist Michael Joseph Harris and Shawn Simon on the bass and a special guest vocalist for this evening, Lynn Veronneau. In honor of love and Valentine’s Day Week we are showing our love and not charging a cover.

Reserve your candlelit table and of course, indulge in our Northern Italian cuisine.  Hot Club of Baltimore is premier gypsy Jazz group of the region specializing in the vast repertoire of vintage jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt including early swing, musette waltzes, show tunes, be bop, and French standards from the 30's and 40's.

 In 2012, Michael Joseph Harris dove into the music of legendary French Manouche guitarist Django Reinhardt which led to the creation of Hot Club of Baltimore. He also produced the popular HD concert video titled "Ultrafaux & Hot Club of Baltimore," and his original song "Latcho Dromo" was chosen for inclusion on an International compilation produced by Jon Larsen called Django Festival #9.

 A graduate of the East Carolina and Towson University jazz programs, Shawn Simon is a sought-after bassist on the East Coast traditional jazz and popular music circuit. Currently on the faculty at Loyola University, he has had the privilege to perform with a variety of jazz artists, including Terrell Stafford, Tim Warfield, Warren Wolf, William Goffigan, and Nicholas Payton.

Lynn Veronneau grew up near Montreal, completing her voice studies in France where her classical training helped her develop a seemingly effortless technique. Lynn moved beyond classical to sing folk, blues and funk before settling on her jazz and pop repertoire, performing in France as a member of the Cernettes, an all-female vocal group. Veronneau is sometimes compared to Stacy Kent, Astrud Gilberto and Gretchen Parlato.
