Midnight in Montparnasse
Just in time to celebrate Bastille Day, the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club are presenting “Midnight in Montparnasse” featuring the self-confessed Francophile Melissa Western.
Singer-actor Melissa Western and her suave backing band will take you on a night of extravagance by transforming you into a Parisian frequenting the back alley of the Montparnasse salon with their velvety jazz, passionate vocals and cheeky banter.
A night of classy jazz cabaret will feature some of the best French music icons including Edith Piaf and Jacques Prévert.
It will pay tribute to jazz stars who made Paris their home such as Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone and of course feature Josephine Baker – the world’s most iconic showgirl. Expect oscillating French and English lyrics, a tongue-in-cheek irreverence for Continental authenticity, lots of feathers, dancing and an onstage sip or seventeen of French bubbles!
