A Musical Feast of Parisian Romance and Mardi Gras Revelry

The Hot Club of Baltimore showcases irresistible renditions of Django Reinhardt jazz, the romantic appeal of French Musette and the rollicking fun of ‘30s and ‘40s swing. Led by celebrated bandleader Michael Joseph Harris and featuring the soaring vocals of Amanda Jones, the quintet’s intimate performance at Loft 129 in downtown Cumberland is the ultimate cure for the winter blues.

With the Hot Club of Baltimore and the eclectic Ultrafaux ensemble, Michael Joseph Harris has appeared in concert halls, clubs and festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe, including Festival Django Reinhardt in France, Preston Jazz and Improvisation Festival in England, Djangoary Soiree Festival in Virginia and Django by the Sea in Maine. He is the founder and artistic director of the Charm City Django Jazz Festival.
