What you'll do
"The highlight of my Paris stay was this Experience I, my girlfriend and our families had there. The cabaret was in Sylvain’s living room, and my mom sat in the front !" Brian CHESKY, Airbnb CEO So, you'll be my guests for a special cabaret performance; we'll meet for an apéritif and buffet before the show. Aka Silvano Jo, I have put on a cross-dressed show of popular "Chanson Française", accompanied by my wonderful pianist/accordionist. We'll go on a musical parisian journey through time, so you get an overview of over a century of the French Songbook, in many diffrent styles : The Montmartre epoch of Yvette Guilbert and "Café Concert" (1900's), Vaudeville stars like Maurice Chevalier, Mistinguett or Josephine Baker, the glorious Pigalle era (1910-20's), major singer/songwriters like Edith Piaf or Charles Trenet (1930-40-50's), Serge Gainsbourg or Charles Aznavour (1960-70's); tongue french pop, and more until modern singer-songwriters like Stromae. I'll tell you in english about the singers & songs' stories. Fun, emotion, and quite a few surpises in store ;) Singers welcome for an open mic song. After the show, we’ll make a toast with Champagne and can keep talking away...
Buffet Toast, traditional French delicatessen, raw veggies, homemade quiche & soup, baguette, cheese, fruit, homemade cake
Drinks Red or white wine, also juice or water, and Champagne for dessert. Coffe, tea or herb tea.
Trained as a dancer, actor and singer, I’ve been a stage artist for over 20 years. My passion today is to perform Chanson in cabaret venues, for special events, and in my "Atelier d'artiste" workshop studio. I love re-interpreting French repertory songs in my own theatrical universe.

Where you'll be
I'm opening my home for you, my "atelier d'artiste", a renovated workshop studio, where I live and rehearse, in the up-and-coming 10th arrondissement of Paris, just next to the beautiful Canal St-Martin scenery. I turn my place into a little theatre where I set up my stage decor for the occasion, with a keyboard for my musician. Food & drinks are served on the wooden bar of my open kitchen. Afterwards we can chat away with a glass of Champagne
