RadVentures hosts ‘Oh La La’, a brilliant quartet with a splendid chanteuse who entertain in classic Parisienne style.
They are RadVentures’ first professional entertainment guests for 2019 and it takes place on Saturday 2nd February 2019 from 7:30pm at St. Mary’s Hall, Main Road, Radcliffe.
The combo offers a cool blend of classy musicianship, some vivid and telling French vocals and authentic Parisian chanson, seen as France’s very own soul music.
They move through flamboyant 1960s’ pop, classic jazz , impressionist music with the Can Can, and bring that ‘certain little café in Paris, just by the Seine’ to Radcliffe…on the River Trent.
There are exquisite treatments of songs made famous by Edith Piaf, France’s Little Sparrow, arguably her most famous daughters, and the French David Bowie, Serge Gainsbourg.
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.
Cabaret style – bring your own drinks and nibbles. Tickets are £10 and available from late December from Pen2Paper, Main Road, Radcliffe, or RadVentures direct on 07718 159520.
