Benoit Viellefon, French singer and musician, fronts two of the leading vintage dance music ensembles at work in Europe today, hand-picked from among the finest musical entertainers in London. Monsieur Viellefon’s Orchestra and the Hot Club are some of the hottest live outfits for all those who revel in the nostalgia and elegance of a bygone era, performing a repertoire consisting of the most beautiful and uplifting songs from the 1920s, ‘30s and ‘40s and originals with classic style.
The Orchestra is in huge demand for major cultural events and concert hall performances, including headline slots at Glastonbury’s Jazz Stage, BBC2, BBC radio3, Hollywood films, regular appearances at Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Albert Hall, Madonna's private parties, William & Kate’s Royal Wedding and a host of European tours.
The Hot Club is all-acoustic intimate alternative to the Orchestra for smaller venues, dancing events and private parties. The Hot Club is resident at Ronnie Scotts and performs the best of gypsy swing, hot jazz, French music and timeless melodies drafted by the master songwriters of the 1920s, 30's and 40s.
