The Hot Sardines

Simply phenomenal.

- The Times (London)

MAR 29, 2017

Back by popular demand, The Hot Sardines return with a new album, French Fries & Champagne! Forbes Magazine calls them “One of the best jazz bands in NYC today.” Their unique recipe of downtown speakeasy gut-bucket blues and lush, uptown elegance create hot jazz magic on stage. Steeped in salty stride piano and the music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt and Fats Waller used to make, The Hot Sardines make straight-up, foot-stomping jazz with their own tap dancer as percussionist.

Their name says it all: their iconic ‘hot’ styling will paint a vibrant picture with smoky sounds and audiences will revel in the steamy, swanky influence of their art form.

With their contagious brand of joy, grit, glamour and passion, they invoke the sounds of nearly a century ago, yet stay right in step with the current age. The Hot Sardines know how to rock a house!
