The Hot Sardines to play The Temple Theater on Jan. 20

New York-based ensemble The Hot Sardines will bring their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals to The Temple Theater on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 2 and 6:30 p.m.

In “On French Fries & Champagne,” the group’s new album for Universal Music Classics, the jazz collective broadens its already impressive palette, combining covers and originals as they effortlessly channel New York speakeasies, Parisian cabarets and New Orleans jazz halls.

The group’s self-titled debut album, named by iTunes as one of the best jazz albums of 2014, spent more than a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart, debuting in the top 10 alongside Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. The accolades began pouring in for the band: Down Beat Magazine called them “one of the most delightfully energetic bands on New York’s ‘hot’ music scene,” while The London Times praised their “crisp musicianship” and “immaculate and witty showmanship,” declaring them “simply phenomenal.”
