Bistro Moustache

Lafayette Art & Wine Festival - Premium Wine Stage

Sunday, September 18, 2016

12:00pm - 1:30pm


Imagine you are in a bistro, Boulevard St Germain, right now. On the table un demi panaché or une tasse de café; un croque-monsieur. The band at the terrasse plays swing, gypsy jazz, waltzes, musette, a song you know. A guitar, a clarinet or a violin, an accordion maybe? A couple dancing, les yeux dans les yeux.

You've heard these songs before. You cannot remember the lyrics, nor the titles. But you knew them. A movie, an old record, Trenet, Brassens, Django, a faint memory from your last trip to France, or the one you wish you'd take.    

Musique française, from Paris to the San Francisco bay area.

Jay's Band Notes about Bistro Moustache

Have you ever heard it said, “Play the Accordion, GO TO JAIL.” Well open up your heart to some of the happiest music ever played. Django Reinhardt and others laid the groundwork for what would become Gypsy Jazz. And these guys, have added their own influences which delivers a fun trip down memory lane. You’ll know the songs, but from where you will ask yourself. Ever sat in sidewalk café in Paris? So find a seat in our Premium Wine Pavilion, sip on a really nice glass of wine, close your eyes and take a trip back a hundred years when European Jazz was evolving and Swing was King.
