Benoit Viellefon performed with his Hot Club for the first time in Sidmouth for the Jazz festival 2023. The band sold out in less than a week after being announced, and the show was truly sensational. Thanks to popular demand Benoit will now play a one off concert again at the Conservative club. Don't miss it!


Benoit Viellefon has long been a firm favourite at the most elegant places around the country. The line up and orchestrations are inspired by the hot swinging music that emerged from the infamous Parisian Cafes and nightclubs of the 1930s & ‘40s.

The Hot Club’s performances celebrates the burning excitement of those hot gypsy swing numbers made famous by Django Reinhardt, together with the romanticism of the finest French numbers. With a nod to the American jazz virtuosi who visited Paris, such as Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, the Hot Club features both clarinet and trumpet alongside the timeless two-guitars and double bass lineup. But they are also often true to the original "Hot Quintet De France" Django Reinhardt & Grapelli line up, with the addition of a virtuoso Violin player.

The Hot Club is resident at Ronnie Scotts and performs the best of gypsy swing, hot jazz, French music and timeless melodies from the 1920s, 30's and 40s.  They have been in huge demand for major cultural events and concert hall performances including: headline slots at Glastonbury’s Jazz Stage, BBC2, BBC Radio3, Hollywood films, National Television, regular appearances at Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Albert Hall, Madonna's private parties, Royal Family private events and a host of European performances. 

Benoit's concerts are infamous for selling out very fast. Please get yourself a ticket while you can!

    We were not impressed with this venue. Although we were 3rd in the queue we didn’t see anything of Benoit due to the L shaped venue. We heard this venue is clissing for a refurb - let’s hope they change the layout and move the band to where the bar currently is! Benoit was brilliant as always but we could have listened to a cd as all the dancers and audience were standing in front of us
