Midnight in Paris
Paris in February … RadVentures hosts Oh La La, a brilliant quartet with ‘chanteuse’ who entertain in classic Parisienne style.
The combo offers a cool blend of classy musicianship, some vivid and telling French vocals and authentic Parisian chanson, seen by many as France’s own soul music.
They move through flamboyant 1960’s pop, classic jazz and ‘impressionist’ music; the Can Can, and bring that ‘certain little café in Paris, just by the Seine’ to Radcliffe.
There are exquisite treatments of songs made famous by Edith Piaf, France’s ‘Little Sparrow’and one of her famous daughters and Serge Gainsbourg, the French David Bowie.
Numbers by Mick Jagger John Lennon, Francoise Hardy, the light-spirited yé yé girl follow on.
Vocalist and accordionist Fifi la Mer turns every song into a mini drama, delivered with elegance, sensuality and sharp wit alongside her fellow musicians.
Date: Saturday 2nd February, 2019 at 7.30pm St Mary’s Hall Radcliffe on Trent, NG12 2FB
