"There really is nobody like The London Hot Club on the Planet today"
- Humphrey Lyttlelton (BBC Radio 2)
The London Hot Club is a gypsy swing group composed of professional musicians with a genuine love for their music. Performing as a quartet, the group consist of 3 acoustic guitarists and an upright bassist. Their repertoire ranges from Parisian café waltz to dancing-on-tables swing to lilting atmosphere music.
Band Leader Phil learned his craft first hand from Parisian gypsys and has spent the last 10 years honing his remarkable skills in front of appreciative audiences across Europe. After many years of searching for the right line up of musicians to perform this elusive music, Phil has formed an ensemble of world class instrumentalists capable of matching the intensity, gusto, passion and fun that he brings to every performance.
The London Hot Club are ideal for weddings and corporate events and great for festivals. They’ve performed in a wide range of settings, from pubs and clubs to the Olympic Park during London 2012!

Garda Jazz Festival (Italy)
The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival (UK)
Birmingham International Jazz Festival (UK)
Wigan International Jazz Festival (UK)
