The members use their own performances and studies in France to research and further extend the band's authentic sound and repertoire.


  French Gypsy Music was enthusiastically received by audiences, (francophones and francophiles alike!) on their 2011 regional Victorian tour where more than one audience member embraced the performers with their words 'You remind us of our wonderful times in Paris"

Other memorable performances include Bastille Day balls; french themed dinners; festivals such as Brisbane's OzManouche Gypsy Jazz festival; concerts at The Boite; Surrey Music Cafe and Glen Eira's Winter Music festival series; the Famous Spiegeltent for the Melbourne festival; functions locally and interstate (Sydney Opera House and Vue de Monde) and numerous private functions.
