Founded more than ten years ago, Hot Club Sandwich began with a deep reverence for Gypsy jazz of the '30s and '40s, growing to incorporate classic jazz and folkloric influences from around the world.

Over the past decade, the distinctive Hot Club Sandwich sound has reached millions through performance and radio with recordings charting in the top 20 of the nationwide CMJ jazz charts.  

In festivals, clubs, public concerts and educational formats, Hot Club Sandwich always offers inspiration, innovation, clever arrangements and adventurous improvisations.

We're honored to accompany the Kulshan Chorus in Bellingham for their annual concert on Saturday, December 8th. For tickets, click here. The music is very diverse - from big band swing songs to Cuban tunes and old world European melodies. This annual event usually sells out, so if you know of anyone in the Bellingham area who would like to go - spread the word.

Want to hear from Tim? No problem. Just sign up for HCS email updates by clicking HERE. He'll keep you abreast of all HCS news and events. Hope to see you soon!

We're developing a special page for our new site entitled: 'Ask Ray'
