Johnny Hepbir “Hot Club” Quartet

Return to Previous Page

The Johnny Hepbir Quartet presents a cool, sophisticated ensemble that brings the seductive tones of classic Parisian ‘Hot Club’ to life. Their distinctive guitar-led sound features stunning female vocals, while a captivating mix of tunes creates an ambience evocative of a bygone era.

“A cool, captivating and contemporary take on classic Parisian ‘Hot Club’ swing jazz…”

The two guitars intertwine to create a complex, exciting melodic conversation while a double-bass provides pulse and depth, underpinning the harmony and driving the rhythm along. This lively, attractive and classy music is the ideal vehicle for the swinging, sultry vocals of vivacious and prodigiously talented singer Sara, who exhibits vivacious stage-presence, contributing real character and charm to every live performance.

The Johnny Hepbir Quartet play an engaging mix of songs from the Swing and Big Band era, freely combined with the well-known Broadway and Hollywood classics, interspersed with more modern show tunes and bossa novas. This wide and versatile repertoire makes the band ideal for providing relaxed, atmospheric background music for a drinks reception – and to suit the mood later, more lively upbeat numbers for dancing.

For more intimate occasions, an instrumental trio can also be provided, and conversely, for larger events and audiences the band’s line-up can readily be augmented to create a fuller, more textured sound. Boasting many years of performance experience during which they have attracted an enviable reputation, together with their wide musical appeal and sophisticated style, the Johnny Hepbir Quartet will be perfect for any event.

A cool and contemporary take on Parisian ‘Hot Club’ swing jazz, the Johnny Hepbir Quartet will create and sustain a sophisticated ambience.
