musician

I dragged my sticks in different contexts, I quickly played in groups of covers, taking up rock, pop. Then I worked with composition groups, the most famous is NORM?, a French power rock trio.
I had the opportunity to set foot in Paris events and orchestras as drummer and percussionist. We work in magical contexts, animate this type of evening is the essence of our profession:
give pleasure through music.

I was hired by Les Percussions Galactiques produced by Poum Tchac in 2005 to make the sound of their show. I am now an integral part of the team on stage or street show.
In parallel with this project, Les Perturbatteurs is born with a concept of crazy urban percussions.



productions

Since a few years I am producing my own bands:

CIRCUS // Tribute to Lenny Kravitz
A dip in the world of Lenny Kravitz , 30 years of rock and languorous ballads meet in a show of an hour and a half, with a team of crazy fans of the artist. The core team consists of 5 musicians (bass-drums-guitar-keyboard-vocals),
joined by a horn section (saxophone-trumpet-trombone) for special occasions.
Many shows till now:
Billy Bob’s Disney Village – Pacific Rock – Festival de la Cerise (Cornesse – Belgium) – Tribute Fest – Cavern Club – Jamel Comedy Club

 

ANOTHER NIGHT IN PARADISE // Tribute to Phil Collins & Genesis
Who has never danced or sung on the Phil Collins or Genesis music? At the beginning, Genesis was a progressive rock band with the singer Peter Gabriel. The band changed his music when Phil Collins took the microphone and replaced Peter.
The band can play with 6 musicians (bass-drums-guitar-2 keyboards-vocals) or 10 musicians (+ saxophone-2 trumpets-trombone) to be closer to the original arrangements.
The band played:
Billy Bob’s Disney Village – Pacific Rock – St Thibault des Vignes

Treasure is an orchestra for special and private events. The setlist can be completely adapted to the customer’s requests and the constraints of the event. The repertoire ranges from 70s, soul and funk to modern music, electro, rock.
