Cold Cut Combo brings ‘gypsy jazz’ to Courtenay

The Downtown Social Club on Saturday, Nov. 29

Victoria-based group Cold Cut Combo is set to perform at The Downtown Social Club on Saturday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m.

Cold Cut Combo is an acoustic group specializing in gypsy jazz, Parisian Musette waltzes and swing & Latin standards featuring virtuosic jazz Manouche guitars, soulful accordion, and sweet vocals.

At the Combo’s core are Christopher Sartisohn (lead guitar) and Aaron Watson (rhythm guitar/accordion/vocals). This duo is often expanded to include upright bass, violin, percussion, horns and additional guitars, and can be seen playing in Victoria’s pubs, clubs, restaurants and lounges, as well as the West Coast festival circuit.

The Combo’s repertoire features jazz standards from the greatest composers of the 20th century, including Duke Ellington, Fats Waller, Cole Porter, Carlos Jobim, George and Ira Gershwin, and of course the great Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli of the Hot Club de France.

The Downtown Social Club is a private venue in the heart of Courtenay.
