By Thad BondurisLNSHK with Andy

Founded in 2004 by clarinetist Andy Cooper, as a “loose collective of musicians wanting to preserve, protect, and defend the right to play Django Reinhardt style music together”, it has become its own popular entity, entertaining hundreds of Dentonites ever since!

Health issues have made Andy take a leave of absence—but his chair anxiously awaits him!

Core musicians of Le Not So Hot Klub du Denton now include: Thad Bonduris – guitar/vocals & ad hoc leadership; Leon Peek – guitar; Maristella Feustle – guitar; Jeffrey Barnes – woodwinds; Ginny Mac – Accordion/vocals; Carlo Canlas – violin; Jacob Appelt – double bass; Steven Prouty – drums.

Past members/occasional guests include: Andy Cooper – clarinet/piano; Bach Norwood – bass; Bonnie Norris – violin; Nick Norris – guitar; Tom Nelson, Steve Horn – mandolins; Michael Mindardi – drums; David Lee Schloss – woodwinds; Mark Menikos, Austin Smith, Dustin Ballard – violins; Carl Finch – accordion; Kimberly Ann Cooper, Kristi Kruger, Charles Wilhoite, Karen Foster – vocals; Daniel Hart – violin/vocals.

The band specializes in acoustically-oriented Early Jazz—namely anything Django would’ve played—and anything that is FUN music! The band is even often followed around by the “NSHK dancers”—yet another “loose collective”…

The central engagement, “house gig”, or “universe around which NSHK revolves” is:
FIRST TUESDAY of every month, at
219 W. Oak Street
Denton, TX 76201

Also, there are occasional others (as well as private event availability) … we’ll keep you posted, so:

SEE Y’ALL THERE, s’il vous plait!
