Sonomusette recreates the moody, evocative sound of the Paris cafe scene of the mid 1900s performing songs made famous by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, and other iconic performers of 20th Century Paris.
The group features French Chanteuse Mimi Pirard whose renditions of these timeless French classics provide a freshness and excitement that is contemporary, yet faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. Few singers are capable of doing justice to Piaf and Brel, and even fewer can match Pirards mesmerizing interpretations and powerful delivery. The band is comprised of period instrumentation featuring Robert Lunceford – accordion, Issac Vandeveer – guitar and bass, Jan Martinelli – upright bass and piano, and Richard Andrews on drums.
