The bands performing in the Entreezaal, the stage by the main entrance, have the important task of stimulating and enthusing visitors as soon as they enter. These bands have to arouse people, stimulating their appetite for more swing, more jazz, more blues. With a name referring to the legendary Hot Club de France of Stéphane Grappelli, Hot
Club De Frank makes a pleasant mix of swing, musette and variété. As the Amsterdam Amstel Hotel's parlor orchestra they acquired the taste. The band did North Sea Jazz two years back. The single 'Shine' was catchy and paved the road for more and more shows, nationally and internationally. The new album has been completed and this year the Amsterdam natives will have the chance to perform at the famous Montreux Jazz Festival.
