Join us for a vibrant journey through the songs, the clubs, and atmosphere of Paris in the Jazz Age, seen through the memories of Eloise DeFleur portrayed by Airlie Scott and her talented band as she sifts through the music, her love story and tales of her Parisian life.

A hot jazz sandwich of French chanson, gypsy jazz, early swing, blues and American songbook classics popular in Paris from the roaring twenties through the occupation to Liberation at the end of the Second World War.

Jazz vocalist & actress Airlie Scott (ProntoSwing, UK, Europe, Westend, Broadway theatre credits) is joined by the melodic playing & captivating vocals of clarinetist/singer Alice Mary Jelaska & early swing accents and vocals 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 Mike Searl.
