Meet the Band

Four Sonoma County women come together through a shared love of gypsy jazz, French musette waltzes, American swing, and more.  Our repertoire is rooted in the music of the 1930s and ’40s: French cafe music, gypsy jazz as popularized by the late guitarist Django Reinhardt, and favorite swing tunes, with some novelty sprinkled in for good measure and a good time. The Haute Flash Quartet is hard driving rhythms, lush vocal harmonies, cool playing, and lighthearted fun – perfect for listening and dancing!

Band Members:
