Hot Club de Katoomba: Cocktail Hour at The Palais Royale
SAustralian violinist Simon Watts (String Theories, Skarrat & Watts) and French singer/guitarist Julien Clement (Belle Jar, Julien Joel Clement) team up for an evening of classic French chansons and an assortment of Hot Club swing jazz in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
Simon picked up the violin at the age of seven and has never stopped playing. After a classical training Simon was restless to explore other styles of music from the music of his Irish ancestry to jazz swings & steamy tangos and his main aim, when playing, is to bring pleasure to his audience and leave them wanting more.
Julien is a singer/songwriter & guitarist known for his many projects covering a wide style of music, here in Katoomba. For the Hot Club de Katoomba, he goes back to his French roots, keen to communicate the passion, drama and humour of French classic songs from the 30s and onwards.
Come along this Saturday to Palais Royale from 5:30 pm for ‘cocktail hour’ and a little ‘weekend chill’ with Julien and Simon.
