Hot Club of Philadelphia

The Hot Club of Philadelphia was started at the end of 2001 By guitarist Barry Wahrhaftig, and violinist Mark Campiglia. We are an acoustic jazz group, dedicated to performing and preserving the music of the Grappelli and Django, and at the same time incorporating some modern influences along the way.

The quartet includes Jim Stager on acoustic bass and Joe Ellis or Rich Yescalis on Rhythm Guitar. Barry plays a Manouche Selmer style guitar. Our 1st full-length CD 'Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams” [Manouche 2010], features guest Howard Alden, Denise King & Phyllis Chapell. It's available on iTunes, CD Baby & our website
