Reviving the enchanting and evocative sounds of the music of mid-twentieth century Paris, SonoMusette combines French chanteuse, musette accordion, gypsy-jazz guitar, piano, upright bass and drums to deliver a moody, melancholy and magical evening of music inspired by artists such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Django Reinhardt.|
This music has retained its power to charm and transport listeners, and SonoMusette taps that nostalgia with artistry in both vocals and instrumentation.
The group features musicians who have played in an array of popular listening and dance bands around the Bay Area. Singer Mimi Pirard spent her youth in Paris, where she learned many of these songs. The rest of the band is accordionist Robert Lunceford, bassist and pianist Jan Martinelli, guitarist and bassist Jason Briggs, and drummer Richard Andrews.
