“The Hot Club of San Francisco” ensemble is performing as part of Mississippi State's Lyceum Series. Doors open approximately 30 minutes before the curtain rises for the 7 p.m. show. Featuring accomplished and versatile musicians celebrating the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s pioneering “Quintette du Hot Club de France,” the HCSF borrows the instrumentation of violin, bass and guitars from the original Hot Club while breathing new life into the music with innovative arrangements of classic tunes and original compositions from the group’s superb lead guitarist, Paul Mehling. In addition to the violin of Grammy Award-winning Evan Price, the group includes the velvet vocals of Isabelle Fontaine and a swinging rhythm section.
