HOT CLUB OF TUCSON ~ Gypsy Jazz

Community Performing Arts Center Foundation
Green Valley, AZ

Tickets: $15/$20 in advance – all tickets $20 at door

The Hot Club of Tucson, formed in 2004, is comprised of guitarist Matt Mitchell, violinist Nick Coventry and bassist Evan Dain. They released their first CD on June 1, 2014, a compilation of several live concerts held at the Randolph Park El Con Jazz Series. With weekly engagements at Hotel Congress and other venues in southern Arizona along with an upcoming performance at the national Gypsy Jazz Festival, this band has quickly become the leading force of this genre in the region.

Due to their traditional American jazz influences, the members of Hot Club of Tucson like to break out of the usually defined roles and interact with each other more than is common in the French jazz style. The Hot Club of Tucson plays Django Reinhardt inspired acoustic gypsy jazz, French jazz, folk, jazz manouche and music from American Tin Pan Alley. This performance will include original arrangements of Lady is a Tramp (L Hart, R Rodgers), Three Little Words (B Kalmar, H Ruby), My Melancholy Baby (E Burnett, G Norton), Honeysuckle Rose (F Waller), Manoir de Mes Reves (D Reinhardt) and much more!

EVAN DAIN: A San Francisco native, multi-instrumentalist Evan Dain started at age 6 on the guitar, and picked up the bass, banjo, and mandolin in high school. Evan studied music at Laney College in Oakland, California, and afterwards served in the U.S. Navy. Picking up the trombone and Tuba along the way, Evan launched a musical career that has encompassed traditional, modern, and latin jazz, rock n’ roll, bluegrass, pop, and country-western. Evan is currently back home in Tucson after spending nearly two years on cruise ships.

MATT MITCHELL: Born in Phoenix, guitarist Matt Mitchell started on classical piano at the age of 7, and picked up rock guitar, and later jazz and classical guitar, in high school. Matt received a Bachelors of Arts in Classical Guitar Performance in 1995 from the University of Arizona. He is lucky enough to be one of the few who get to make a living doing what he loves. Matt has played 200+ gigs a year for 20 years.

NICK COVENTRY: Nick Coventry started playing violin at an early age and after hearing a Stephane Grappelli tape at the age of 12 he began in earnest to learn the swinging style of Gypsy jazz violin. At 18 he studied classically at the University of California Santa Barbara, at 20 he started his first gypsy swing band, “Les Gendarmes du Swing” and began writing and performing around his hometown of Goleta, California. In 2005 he travelled to the famous Djangofest at Samois-sur-Seine, France to meet and play with the best European musicians of Gypsy jazz. This resulted in a series of tours around Spain, England, Scotland and Denmark with the Hot Club of Galicia. At home, Nick has performed at the Djangofest in San Francisco with Gonzalo Bergara, as a guest with the John Jorgenson Quintet, Stephane Wrembel trio in New York, and with Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan at Chicago’s Green Mill. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Community Performing Arts Center Foundation
Green Valley, AZ

Going beyond your present way of painting… create new starts of exploration in your journey towards the Brigg’s Competition. It takes more than technique to paint. But the painter needs all the technique she or he can learn, to step out of the way, to be spontaneous, to react to shapes, color, texture, line and to become aware of your 6 senses, feelings and intuitively paint from the heart and soul expressing self that is abstract painting.

Art Workshop - The Pouring Spirit Instructor: Francheskaa

Community Performing Arts Center Foundation
Green Valley, AZ

“The spirit of self needs to be released in the pouring, for the process to begin. The movements of shapes, textures and patterns create rhythm and movement as the colors flow and dance with the tipping and turning of the Yupo Paper. The presence appears. It has started, as you refine the exploration you can paint with a brush to continue your pouring.” Watercolor Pouring is very freeing because it allows you to release your control. After you let a successful pour dry you can go back in and subtract and add to areas where you desire more contrast and excitement.
