Upstate New York's hottest gyspy swing band, playing a wide range of Django Reinhardt–Stephane Grappelli tunes and original compositions in the gypsy jazz style.

MHC is a gypsy jazz group that plays hot swing of the 30s and 40s. The group celebrates the music made popular by legendary guitarist, Django Reinhardt, and jazz violinist, Stephane Grappelli. An impressive repertoire of period music, along with newer favorites and a growing body of original compositions, make for an unforgetable listening experience.

“I wanted to thank you again for performing at the Silo/Hunt Hill Farm. The thoughtful exciting arrangements, the precise playing and clarity, the professionalism—the whole package of musical excellence just blew everyone away. The originals were on par with the covers. You guys are spectacular. We hope you enjoyed your time here and will come back to play for us again.”

“MHC has the ability to transport you to many different places; a jazz club lounge dancing the tango, a gypsy caravan's campfire, front row seat at the orchestra or a lovely corner table at the best restaurant in Orange County! Be assured that you will be entertained by the talent of the musicians as well as the choice of the music.”

“Metropolitan Hot Club is one of the best of the Django inspired groups and certainly the most fun. This group would have been outstanding even in Jazz's golden era. For listeners today, they are a complete delight and a reminder of those wonderful years when this music was truly the popular music of the world. Their playing exemplifies the spirit and swing of Jazz’s golden age.”

“This gypsy jazz band brought class and fun to my wedding. My husband and I are avid swing dancers, so we knew we needed a dance band.... They really helped make things go smoothly, and were so, so, so fun to dance to. Everyone danced, even people who aren't usually inclined to dance. The guests LOVED them! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend MHC for your wedding!”

“This group of talented musicians helped my wife and I throw a really amazing and memorable wedding. They were extremely professional and put together some really fun renditions of our special request songs. My wife and I are swing dancers and we had an amazing time dancing to their live music.
