Edwin Bélanger Bandstand, 9-12 August, 2012

This week, the Bandstand presents:

THURSDAY AUGUST 9, 8:00 P.M.:
MÔ JAZZ
A native of Saguenay, sax player J.G. Maurice Bouchard has lived in Martinique for more than 20 years. With his highly impressive artistic and academic background (theatre, dance, music) the leader composer reconnects, for a velvety evening, with his musical comrades Raynald Drouin (drums), Ghislain Potvin (trumpet), Gilles Bernard (piano) and Pierre Côté (double bass).
Accept this invitation to discover the Caribbean jazz scene.

SATURDAY AUGUST 11, 8:00 P.M.:

LA RITOURNELLE
These jolly fellows describe their music as chanson vagabonde (wandering song). Although just returned from Europe, these Francophone composer-performers are already working on their second opus. There will be smiles, and infectious madness: a likable picture devoted to spicy French songs with a bohemian flavour.  Be set adrift in a festive, colourful world built on dreams and travels.

FRIDAY AUGUST 10, 8:00 P.M.:
LE GRAND ORCHESTRE DE ROLAND MARTEL
The Bandstand’s prized performance, this is THE BIG BAND par excellence, since it is part of most major events in Québec City. Led by the popular orchestra conductor Roland Martel, sixteen musicians and a female singer travel through Quebec and France with their impressive ballroom style repertoire that includes 3000 pieces from the 30’s to today. Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Elvis Presley… nothing is missing in this brassy evening.

SUNDAY AUGUST 12, 8:00:
MARTIN FONTAINE
After the unquestionable success of Elvis Story and Showman, the dynamic Martin Fontaine proves once and for all that he is in his element on stage with this brand new show Let the Good Times Roll. Sail through the 60’s and 90’s decades with such stars as James Brown and relive the Peace and love and Disco eras. Be overcome by these exciting rhythms which should get you moving in no time!
