Benoit Viellefon, French singer and musician, fronts three of the leading vintage dance music ensembles at work in the UK today. 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.
The Orchestra is a swing and dance band peerforming 1920-30-40's music. Since 2009 they have been in huge demand for major cultural events and concert hall performances including: headline slots at Glastonbury’s Jazz Stage, BBC2, BBC radio3, Hollywood films, TV work, regular appearances at Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Albert Hall, Madonna's private parties, Royal Family private events and a host of European performances.
The Hot Club is all-acoustic intimate alternative 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 from the 1920s, 30's and 40s.
The Trio is was born during the pandemic with and the need to reduce band sizes to perform small clubs. It is based on the Nat King Cole Trio, Slim & Slam and all the great post war small combos. The Trio is resident at Nightjar, Nightjar Carnaby and a couple of other award winning venues.
