Guess who’s celebrating 21 years of music that makes people happy?! Formed in 1997, Monsieur Camembert are celebrating their 21st birthday!
It’s an extraordinary 21 years that has seen the band win 3 ARIA Awards (with a nomination for a 4th), and perform on major stages from Montreux Jazz Festival to The Sydney Opera House, from the Paralympic Opening Ceremony to the International Leonard Cohen festival in Canada to their sold-out show last August at City Recital Hall!
Monsieur Camembert will be doing a handful of very special shows around Australia in 2018 to celebrate their 21st birthday, starting with a 21st birthday Easter weekend show at Camelot Lounge Marrickville! The night will feature some very special guests, including singer Abby Dobson and trumpeter Vlad Khusid!
“With sensitivity, virtuosity, & extraordinary energy, 3x ARIA-winning band Monsieur Camembert brilliantly weaves Gypsy music with other world music styles, to create a truly original & intoxicating blend…from Russian Gypsy songs, to tango and klezmer, from Gypsy swing to Latin grooves, “…they pick you up and carry you on a wave of energy, excitement and poignancy that never relents…the band play with such cohesion, energy and abandon that I experienced an emotion so foreign I barely recognised it: elation.” (John Shand, SMH).
