      To judge from the listings in the current Jazz Dixie/Swing quite a hotbed.

      The Hot Club de Lyon, 26 rue Lanterne, 69001 Lyon, is said to present a gig
      every night from Tuesday to Saturday . There¹s a list of venues with jazz
      from time to time. The only one with a website is Le fox-trot at
      <www.lefoxtrot.fr>, and the only gig listed that far head is Hahmet Gulbay
      (no idea, sounds manouche) on 9 April at Jazz et Gastronomie at Chaponnay,
      which is outer suburban.

      Get in touch again nearer the time.
