Pardon My French!—a vintage french jazz band playing cabaret tunes—celebrates love and French music in their latest show ‘La Terre Qui Est Un Astre’ (the earth, which is a star)!
This New Orleans-based band came together out of a love of Frenchness; the romance, the sophistication, the je ne sais quoi…and a complete lack of French. Not a fluent speaker among them—but Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg in their hearts—swing and Broadway guitarist Pete Rozé, Pitch Perfect actress and vocalist Caroline Fourmy, traditional jazz bassist Claude Arthur, and accordion and pianist Jesse Reeks combined their powers to create the most delightful repertoire of vintage French classics and cabaret tunes this side of the Atlantic. Playing house concerts to intimate venues to the Strathmore Mansion and 2022 Jazz Fest, Pardon My French! has you falling in love in 1920’s Montmarte…and stocking up on French curse words.
