Ladies and Gentlemen
After 8 years on the circuit and about 1000 concerts, Benoit Viellefon finally recorded the Hot Club playing 1930-40’s Hot Swing and Gypsy Jazz. The band being a firm favourite on the British dance scene, (Balboa, Shag, Fox Trot, Lindy Hop), we were under strong pressure to release an album. Done! The birth was difficult but the baby is cute, and the music is excellent apparently… This will only be available on CD, no streaming, MP3 or Youtube.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO RELEASE IT!
People don’t seem to buy music these days, they take selfies instead.
This is why we decided to try to cover some of the costs with an INDIEGOGO Crowd-funding campaign. Hopefully we can get enough fans to support us and so that we can cover some of the costs and release a new CD. You can pre-order your CD, or T-shirt, or even private concert by clicking the image below (it also shows you the amount we raise so far.
LISTEN TO AN EXCLUSIVE SONG FROM THE ALBUM:
This record will be on CD only. There is no point doing a digital release because artists don’t get a penny. We’ve uploaded one track from that new album on soundclaud so you can get a little tease of what it sounds like. Please have a listen, if you like it please go on Indiegogo and get a CD (if you are totally loaded), or simply share it on Facebook and Twitter (if you are really poor). Both will help greatly, and sharing is free.
WATCH EIGHT EXCLUSIVE VIDEOS:
We shot 8 videos to support the album, all done live with a couple of microphones and 3 cameras at the Oriole in Central London. These have not been released yet, and we’re showing you a teaser below. But you can watch all 8 of them from our INDIEGOGO crowd-funding campaign. Just have a look and share!
It is all in your hands now. We hope that you will like it and that we’ll raise enough funds to finalise the release of this album this summer.
