About Hot Club of SRQ  

The heart of this ensemble is the violin and vocals of Keven Aland, the guitar of Jon McLaughlin and bass playing of Glenn Stevenson. Their string jazz ensemble has been thoughtfully cultivated and crafted for over a decade. There is a genuine warmth and connection that is unique to this ensemble. This group can swing ferociously then suddenly hypnotize you with a beautiful ballad.


Beyond the genre of Gypsy Jazz, their vast repertoire includes Rumba Flamenco, Bossanova, Samba, Tango, BeBop, Modern Jazz, swing, Afro Cuban and the great American songbook. All members of HCSRQ have education backgrounds in Music Performance and have been commissioned to write, arrange and perform a variety of world music over the years including dances from Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, an Appalachian arrangement and a “Broadway” themed performance at the Straz Center in Tampa.
