AOTNZ culinary feast – Hot Club Sandwich Tour 7-29 August
Audiences have laughed and loved Andrew London’s lyrics - and marvelled at the musicianship of bass player Terry ’The Engine Room’ Crayford, saxophonist James Tait Jamieson and guitarist London on two previous AOTNZ tours.
This exceptionally popular trio is back again to sing about household appliances, male insecurities, youth culture, coffee culture, rugby culture, and other concerns of current Kiwi life – all in a style which owes its origins to the 1930s Hot Club swing music of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli.
Hot Club Sandwich have played at arts and jazz festivals throughout Australasia, performed in Saudi Arabia in 2010, and released seven CDs and a live DVD. Their 2004 album ‘Toasted’ rated a four star review in Downbeat USA, the world’s most widely read jazz publication.
“…warmly appealing with eccentric edges...having the time of their lives getting a handle on bluegrass, country blues, jug band, pop-rock, vaudeville music and jazz a la Quintette du Hot Club de France, then adding devilishly clever wordplay for an old-time music of their own. “
Hot Club Sandwich songs have featured in NCEA English papers and movie soundtracks.
