The award winning Red Rock Hot Club is recognized as one of the top American based
Gypsy Jazz Ensembles. Founded in 1999 and led by the swinging guitar stylings of
Rich D’aigle, the group specializes in the music of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club
of France. Upon Rich's return to his native Maine, Pat Terry assumed leadership of the band in early 2014, and with the added help of James Martak's guitar and Dave Bowen on Bass, the core
of this Jazz group skillfully delivers the sound of Paris ala 1930’s and 40’s. However, as
masters of Swing Jazz, they are capable take you on a musical journey with tastes of New
Orleans, and then a trip down to San Antonio for a bit of Western Swing!
The Red Rock Hot Club Live with Special Guests Vol. 1 & 2, proves to be their most
exciting yet, as it’s packed with over TWO hours of Hot Vintage Jazz ala Swing, and is filled
with many surprises for Gypsy Jazz fans old and new! Most noticeable is the addition of
D’aigle’s vocals; simply put, Rich’s voice is a smoky, throaty growl that evokes the tones of
Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Tom Waits, adding a completely new dimension to this recording.
