Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés Paris

Grand Bal Swing avec L’Esprit Jazz Big Band

Special guest: Mick Donegan, Irish dancer

In just a few years, the Big Swing Ball of the Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés Paris has become a fixture of the CCI’s summer programme. Re-live the ambience of the big American jazz bands of the 50s with L’Esprit Jazz Big Band. The thirteen musicians are joined this year by crooner Marc Thomas and will keep you dancing as they revisit classics from the great orchestras of Count Basie, Duke Ellington or Glenn Miller. Swing your skirts, polish your Oxfords and dance around the beautiful courtyard of the CCI! Come dressed up or coiffed in fifties style and you will be eligible for a reduced-price ticket.

Special guest, Irish dancer Mick Donegan is known for his innovative style as both a performer and choreographer. He will treat us to some “foot-weaving wizardry” (The Irish Times) combining traditional Irish dance and swing.
