Holidays and habits

Allo Allo, après tous les festivals pendant les dernières semaines, plus récemment notre première partie pour M Ward et Dawes à L’Imperial à Québec pour le Festival D’été, on va prendre une petite pause avant qu’on commence les shows et les tournées en automne.

C’est pas mal Montréal en été…les terrasses, les terrasses, et les terrasses.


Nos amis de la Suisse, Les petits chanteurs à la gueule de bois, arrivent ce weekend pour une tournée au Québec qui va durer trois semaines.

On va jouer avec eux au Quai de Brumes à Montréal jeudi le 27 juillet.

Aussi, c’est triste à dire, mais ce soir-là sera notre dernière show avec Patrick Dugas officielle parce qu’il retourne aux études en septembre. On va faire un show comme on a fait à l’époque de notre résidence à L’Inspecteur Epingle. Manquez-le pas!

à bientôt


Hello friends,

Our run of festivals (Montreal Jazz Fest, FestiVoix Trois-Rivières, Montreal Folk Fest and most recently the Festival d’été de Québec) are now behind us, and we have now embarked on a well-deserved little holiday before hitting the road again. Families, friends – prepare your guest-rooms, we’re coming to visit!

Although Montreal is also an excellent place to have time off…

New summer tradition: breakfast-picnic on the mountain, followed by some book reading, people watching and a little snooze, and then a long leisurely winding bike ride down to a favourite micro-brewery terrasse for an afternoon beer.

What bliss.

But it is not quite all rest and relaxation. In a very short while, we welcome to Montreal our dear friends from Switzerland Les petits chanteurs à la gueule de bois – a guaranteed good time for all personality types and astrological birth signs.

We couldn’t help ourselves, so we’re going to be taking time off from our vacations to do a little show with them on July 27th at Quai des Brumes. You guys should come – it’s just a few blocks over on St-Denis. We’ll see you there!

Then after all that, we’ll fill you in on what coming up… signing off now before we spill the beans…

See you on the terrasse!


New! Exciting! Fresh! Action-Packed!

Bonjour, Goedendag, Hello, مرحبا, Привет, Sanibonani, こんにちは。

It’s been so long, have you missed us? We’ve missed you.

Here in Montreal, Spring has come quickly followed by early Summer. Everyone has emerged from hibernation, and the neighbourhood is alive and buzzing with the bustling activity of kicked ant-hills or bee colonies with a new queen.

Four of those bees (that’s us) are very pleased to announce some state-of-the-art, still-in-original-packaging, fresh-from-the-oven shows.

We are happy, pleased, even as pleased as punch, to announce two nights at the Savoy for the upcoming Festival International de Jazz de Montréal!

This might not be news for you if you have already perused the column immediately to the left of this sentence but it bears repeating. Okay one more time…

Montreal International Jazz Festival shows coming soon!!!

Okay, that’s probably enough. If any of you would like to join us for the certain magic of these performances, you can get your tickets here.

The fun does not end there. No, oh no, we have been good all year long, and have been rewarded with shows at Festival Folk sur le Canal, FestiVoix in Trois-Rivières, and last but not least the Festival d’été de Québec!

Honestly, after looking at the truly impressive list of music-makers coming to these festivals, I’m expecting to take a week or two off from sleeping in order to go see EVERYTHING.

Now make sure to hydrate yourselves adequately. I suggest 5 large chunks of fruit such as watermelon, berries, oranges or even cucumber, a few sprigs of fresh mint and about 10 ice cubes in a pitcher of water. So refreshing.
