Jazz from 8-9 p.m.

At 9 p.m., Le Not So Hot Klub du Denton (not France) takes the stage with a fabulous array of talented musicians, playing Gypsy Swing ala Django Reinhardt – for your listening and dancing pleasure. (I personally favor their rendition of “Caravan.”)

Founded in 2004 by clarinetist Andy Cooper, as a “loose collective of musicians wanting to preserve, protect, and defend the right to play Django Reinhardt-style music together”, it has become its own popular entity, entertaining hundreds of Dentonites ever since!
