Professional, unique and captivating is the best way to describe our performance. Imagine being serenaded by classical violin and guitar for an elegant ceremony then switching to our "hot jazz" ensemble transporting your guests to a wonderland of 1930's Paris. Together we can create a vintage ambiance that is refreshing to the soul and pleasing to all.
Founded in June of 2015, the "Hot Club of SRQ" has quickly established itself as the premiere "Gypsy Jazz"/ Parisian Swing ensemble of the South. Our distinction is the focus on the violin as its main melodic voice and a bouncy and energetic rhythm section of guitar(s) and up-right bass. We play music that is deeply rooted in the style of the legendary "Quintette du Hot Club de France". Our violinist has a velvety voice reminiscent of Cab Calloway and Louis Armstrong. This music simply swings and is full of beauty and romance! "Reputably the most swinging, versatile and refined Gypsy Jazz ensemble in the South". (Malcolm Chrupcala)
We specialize in 20's, 30's, 40's Jazz. For a more Early American Jazz feel we can add soprano saxophone, clarinet, mandolin and drums. We can also integrate Latin styles such as flamenco, samba, bossanova, bolero, tango, cha cha and mambo.

I book performers as backyard events as part of The Open Studio, a non-profit in Englewood, FL. I've had Hot Club of SRQ twice this (3-month) season. Both times, their performances were flawless. They are very easy to deal with. Keven Aland and company are true professionals. Their playlist is extensive, and covers a wide selection of music. Everyone who has attended their performances has been taken by the "vibe" of both the music and the musicians as well. Very approachable, entertaining. I highly recommend them, not just for weddings, but for any event where their style of music is appropriate.Sent on 04/21/2017

I hired Aland Music to play Gypsy. They are very accomplished and very talented musicians. To top it off, they play with soul; they are not mere technicians. They truly made our event very special. I highly recommend Aland Music.Sent on 04/04/2017
