"La Pompe Jazz is a Denver-based gypsy jazz group formed in 2013.
What started as a way to connect with fellow musicians and explore classic French gypsy tunes has developed into an eclectic blend of classic American jazz standards and "Hot Club de France" inspired tunes.
La pompe is the French term for the driving rhythmic pulse that is ubiquitous throughout the gypsy jazz style. Made famous by the legendary Django Reinhardt, gypsy jazz uses the steady beat of the rhythm guitar to propel the jazz swing.
La Pompe Features David Lawrence (vocals and guitar), Andrew Hannum (guitar), Kevin Laxar (upright bass), and Erik Fellenstein (violin)"
