Friday, July 25 / The Ark

Originating in Paris in the early 1930s, Hot Club Jazz, also known as Gypsy Jazz, was first popularized by the Quintette du Hot Club de France, led by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli. And the style remains popular today. Many jazz groups across the US and Europe continue in the Hot Club tradition. With the customary absence of drums, the guitar and bass are played with a percussive, driving rhythm. Hot Club of Detroit features lead and rhythm guitars, bass, saxophone, and an accordion.

8:00pm. $20. The Ark, 316 South Main St., Ann Arbor, MI 48103, 734-761-1451. theark.org
