Gramercy hotel jazz

Moulin Rouge Party at the Gramercy

Avalon Jazz Band performed at a Moulin Rouge themed evening at the Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan for the lauching of Clos Du Bois’ new red wine. We played a repertoire of mostly French music, including Gypsy jazz standards and old Parisian songs, while cancan dancers hopped and twirled with the utmost grace and guests enjoyed their Ladurée maracons. All this craziness happened in the Rose Bar, under the watchful eye of masterpieces by Basquiat, Hirst and Schnabel. Apparently, there were celebrity sightings at the party that evening, but we were too deep into our retro jazz world to recognize (or notice) anyone…
