Hot Sugar Band & Nicolle Rochelle
Hot Sugar Band
Born in 2010, the Hot Sugar Band has become one of the top-rated bands in the world of Lindy- hop and Swing dance in general.
Based in Paris, and featuring some of the finest musicians of the french swing and jazz scene, the band has performed all around the world, including Sweden, Vietnam, Hungary, Lithuania, Canada, Spain, South Korea, China, Italy, Netherlands … among many others !!
Its unique, highly recognisable sound, at the crossing of John Kirby’s sextet, Django Reinhardt big band works, and Count Basie and Duke Ellington’s classics, in addition to the band’s endless energy on stage, have contributed to make it one of the most-demanded bands in the world of swing, with 300+ shows over the 5 last years and more than 2.000.000 views on youtube.
Born and raised in New York, Nicolle is a fabulous and complete (dancing, tap-dancing, acting, and first and foremost singing !) entertainer in the great tradition of swing divas. Hear her perform a repertoire around Billie Holiday, Maxine Sullivan, Ella Fitzgerald … and your feet will just follow
