John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus

Now celebrating it’s 16th year together, John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus was originally formed as a personal tribute by guitar legend Etheridge to his mentor and inspiration Stephane Grappelli with whom he worked for 5 years in the 70’s and early 80’s.
Taking it’s cue from the Hot Club of France – the legendary group that featured Grappelli and Django Reinhardt – the band features John’s dazzling guitar work and the scintillating violin of Chris Garrick. The relationship of these two has been described as one of the most potent in European jazz and backed up by the propulsive drive of Kelbie and Crowdy the band produces breathtaking sallies through repertoire both old and contemporary, with originals and standards. Melodically based inspired, swinging acoustic jazz..
