Band Biography

The Tolka Hot Club are a hot swing group formed by the banks of the river Tolka on Dublin’s north side, late in 2014. The group bring a body of music from the Roaring 20’s and 30’s, from both sides of the Atlantic right into the twenty-first century, along with this the repertoire is peppered with Balkan , Latin and Turkish tunes with a few modern surprises! All this is delivered with the lush yet percussive ambiance that only strings and reeds can provide in the hypnotic Gypsy jazz style.
