Hot Club Wednesday: Kelley Kimball & Djangophonique: North Star Lounge

A lifelong student of classical and popular vocal repertoire, Kelley draws inspiration from a deep appreciation of the Great American Songbook; the classic interpreters of art song; and the legendary torch singers and chanteuses of the twentieth century. A true singing actress, Kelley enchants audiences with her signature sophistication, elegance, and theatricality. Driven by a passion for the complexity of human emotions, she transports listeners to worlds of love and longing, fantasy and pleasure, laughter and play.

Djangophonique is a virtuosic, instrumentally driven quartet led by guitar player Andrew Brown. With over a decade of national touring experience, Brown is no stranger to the stage and delivers every performance with personality and enigmatic charm. A true disciple of the style, Brown has spent countless hours immersing himself in the language of Django Reinhardt’s jazz manouche, and he’s joined on stage by bandmates that match his skill and passion for the material. The result is a sound that’s unmistakable to fans of the music, and alluring to the uninitiated—a sound that can bring the lively energy of a parisian dance hall to the quietest listening room or captivate a buzzing festival audience with a shimmering ballad. With respect for the tradition and a fearless creativity that bends the conventions of the style, Djangophonique is keeping the Hot Club revival alive and well.
