    Oh! La! La! mixes Parisian folk music (musette) and French chanson with unforgettable 20’s upbeat to 50’s smooth jazz, film noir/nouvelle vague film music and the occasional rearranged cool 60’s French pop tune. Every now and then, they give you one of their original tunes too!


    The dulcet tones of Parisian-born Fifi la Mer's voice and the evocative sound of her accordion blended with the talents of Oliver Wilby on clarinet will take you straight back to that little café by the Eiffel tower. Then, encouraged by the exuberance of Alex Garnett they will transport you to that buzzy jazz club by Pigalle with the help of Mark Ridout on guitar and the groove of Julian Bury on double bass.
