A French themed experience with an opportunity to come along and have fun, dress up and perhaps sample some French wine and cheeses and enjoy a wonderfully entertaining and cultural evening with the local community. Half Parisian, half Scottish, Fifi la Mer and Oliver Wilby present a unique, brand new show that will take you on a journey through 100 years of French music, from Offenbach to Gainsbourg. The show features the dulcet tones of Fifi on accordion and voice, and the talents of Oliver on clarinet, members of the saxophone family, and accordion. Together they will transport you to “the city of lights”?with their repertoire of musical gems, and along the way you will get to enjoy tales of mystery, romance and heartache that we so often associate with Paris. When not touring with this show, Fifi leads the band called ‘Oh la la!’ regularly performing at Ronnie Scott’s jazz club amongst other prestigious venues with Oliver who also is part of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, and the Ray Gelato Giants.
