The Hot Bunch is a Swing band from the South of France formed in October 2020. The crew is made of six friends coming from southern Jazz bands such as “Le Bardi Manchot”, “The Cannibal Dandies”, “Swing Vandals” & “The Shoeshiners Band” ! Driven by their love for Jazz and Swing music they decided to form this six piece band to play the music of Billy Strayhorn, Johnny Hodges or even John Kirby with a horn section only made of reeds !

After a first session of rehearsals they recorded and filmed three tunes, including a version of “Sideways” wich features in the video a fair number of their swing dancing friends from France and Belgium ! Maybe you’ll recognize some of your friends too ?


Thanks a Bunch !
