Bistro Moustache plays French Café music, a style that mixes Manouche, Gypsy Jazz, Musette, Swing, and that was popular in France before and after the Second World War, and that is still very much alive today.
We go from the popular timeless classics (Les Feuilles Mortes, C’est Si Bon, Ménilmontant, J’Attendrai, La Foule, Sous Le Ciel De Paris, La Vie En Rose) to more modern (Il Est Cinq Heures Paris S’Éveille, Le Poinçonneur Des Lilas, Le Déserteur, Vesoul), and even songs that you may hear on the French radio today. We also feature dance tunes, Waltzes, Polkas, Tangos, Auvergne Bourrées and Celtic folk, or French children comptines, like Frère Jacques, or Sur Le Pont D’Avignon. All the songs are sung in French by Olivier, a native Parisian.
Just as if Charles Trenet, Jacques Brel, Yves Montand, Georges Brassens, Serge Gainsbourg, Tino Rossi, Edith Piaf, Boris Vian, Django Reinhardt, Gus Viseur and Jo Privat were all on the same stage together for one evening.
Prepare to be musically transported to the terrace of a Paris Bistro, a Guinguette on the Marne river or a Bal Musette on the banks of the Seine.
