About lePercolateur
Winding their caravan through the windiest of cities, lePercolateur has spent the time since this fateful night sweeping in to transport concert-goers to a time where music was a liberating and cathartic respite from persecution-- where the frenetic energy of struggling to simply 'be' coalesced with the unbridled spirit of gypsy music and burgeoned into swing dancing. The troupe transforms the Green Mill, Andy's Jazz Club, Untitled, Jazz Showcase, Winter's Jazz Club and Katerina's into sold-out Parisian dance halls circa 1937 on a monthly basis. Their high-energy sideshow has made "Percolateers" of attendees of the Chicago World Music Festival, Lakeview Art Festival, Glen Ellyn Jazz Festival, Deer Park Jazz Festival, Jazz Institute of Chicago's Jazz Tours, Hard Rock Cafe Chicago, All Souls Jazz Festival, City Winery, Mayne Stage, Martyrs, Schubas, Midwest Gypsy Jazz Festival, Chopin Theatre, the Chicago Cultural Center's "Music Without Borders" series, and University of Chicago and Purdue University's Swing Dances. They were Featured Artists in the Windy City Lindy Exchange, during which they flaunted their uncanny ability to seamlessly fuse two different eras via their reinterpretations of modern pop through the medium of hipster gypsy jazz. Along the way, these temporally displaced merry-makers were victorious at the Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival's "Last Banjo Standing" contest.
