Born in the south of France, Patrick Berrogain's foray into the music world began at the age of 14 when he bought his first guitar with money he made from summer jobs. Although growing up in a culture that was steeped in the musette repertoire, it was not until 1998 that Patrick's interest in Gypsy jazz piqued. Together with fellow ex-pat and rhythm guitarist, Alain Cola, the two formed Hot Club of San Diego which enjoyed a nine year run. In 2007, Patrick created his latest Gypsy jazz group, HOT CLUB COMBO.
Today, Patrick enjoys writing and arranging for the band. His music has been used on radio and television around the world.
In addition to playing lead with Hot Club, Patrick has occasionally performed as a rhythm player for Gypsy Jazz master Angelo Debarre and is the translator/accompanist for Angelo's Djangofest workshops.
Outside of the Gypsy Jazz world, Patrick has a flourishing career as a jazz and pop guitar/bass player. In 2006, he performed along side some of the world's most celebrated guitarists including Eric Johnson, Doyle Dykes, Albert Lee and Doc Watson at Dan Crary's premier production of Primal Twang: The Legacy of the Guitar.
