Following the sold-out Bastille Day performance in 2018, Jean de Talhouët (Super Best Friends Club, Kamao Quartet, ONMO…) returns to Crazy Coqs for French Fest 2019, together with a crew of handpicked musicians, to take you on a wild journey through the life of one of the 20th century's standout cultural icons, Serge Gainsbourg. Aside from having earned status as one of the world's most revered and influential songwriters, Gainsbourg was also a painter, actor, filmmaker, screenwriter, director, novelist, poet, and composer - he is a true example of the renaissance man.

The sextet includes some of London's most in demand musicians. It is led by a charismatic international duo of young singers - the gifted French singer-songwriter, Garance Louis (Garance and the Mithocondries, Chewy She…) and wonderful Cherise Adams-Burnett (Trope, SEED ensemble…), currently making waves on the London Jazz scene.

Completing the line-up is Johnny Woodham on trumpet, Dorian Ford on keys, Huw V Williams on double and electric bass, and Simon Roth on drums.
