Travel back in time to the early acoustic swing era of the 1920’s & 30’s and experience one of Vancouver’s most eclectic gypsy-jazz ensembles. Chanteuse Deanna Knight, shares sassy and sultry vocals alongside the driving rhythms and hot solos of Michael Dunn and the Hot Club of Mars. Rooted deeply in the rhythms of Django Reinhart, this unique ensemble adds to a traditional sound with melody, charm and loads of fun. Enjoy a clever repertoire, spanning a full century from historical tangos written in the early 1900’s to contemporary songs of today.

Deanna weaves her lyrical magic around swing classics, tangos, bossa, boogie and original compositions.
