Presenting an early preview of our brand new show! Paris in a Jazz Age: The Memoirs of Eloise DeFleur. We’ll take you on a journey through the songs and memories of Paris from 1920s-1950s through the eyes of our protagonist Eloise (played by Airlie Scott) as she sifts through the music, the memories, her own love story and tales of her Parisian life.

A hot jazz sandwich of french chanson, gypsy jazz tunes, early swing and American songbook classics popular in Paris in the Jazz Age spliced with anecdotes, & tales from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Be one of the first to see this exciting new show!

Jazz vocalist & actress Airlie Scott (Pronto Swing, UK, Europe, Westend, Broadway theatre credits) joined by the melodic playing & captivating vocals of clarinetist/singer Alice Mary Jelaska & early swing accents of hot cornet player Leigh Henson (Mardi Gras band) with a hot rhythm section- fiery, melodic playing of hot jazz guitarist Andy Ruiz Palma (La Bouche Manouche, Bright Stars of Jazz) & the highly sought after hot club guitarist David Ahmed (The Hot Club de Londres) & top London double bass player Alan Gibson.

“The Hot Jazz Vagabonds delighted the audience with French chanson, American Songbook standards & jazz gems. The highly effective rhythm section lent itself perfectly to the dramatic & talented vocal style of Airlie Scott” Tad Newton, Walnut Tree Jazz Club

“Swinging music from the 20s, 30s and 40s perfectly suited our event. A mix of swing, hot jazz, vintage numbers…can’t wait to have them back.” Manager Brooklands Museum.
