The group, among the most anticipated, managed to gather a large crowd near the stage. Instead of calm and alert at the beginning of the service, it’s really one of help, the ninth theme song, that the audience became more energetic and energetic. The only downside to the performance, once we stepped back a bit from the front stage, singer Noel Skaggs’ voice was inaudible. The viewer had to get close to the stage to hear it.
Andy Grammer, the charismatic personality
After a brief performance by the electric musician from the Montreal Cree, it was the turn of another native of California, the much-loved Andy Grammer, to appear on stage for the first time on Quebec land. When he gave us a brisk hit on the ten stages of self-acceptance, he left some spectators a little bewildered, but as the performance progressed, the singer overpowered them all one by one, with songs that were catchy and cheerful. after the other. More than just an honorable mention of saxophonist Tomoka Nomura for her precision and solo rhythm in darling I’m fine. The group is making their first visit to Quebec, and it will be far from being their last, and Andy Grammer’s faith ensured their return.
A Journey Through the Stories of Kim Churchill
A dramatic change of energy occurred with Andy Grammer’s previous performance, with Australian Kim Churchill appearing on stage accompanied by only one trumpeter, Kipker Felix Cauchon.

The ancestral allure seemed to have an effect, the American group put on a well-rehearsed show, musically strong, without going too far in seeking audience contact. There was a hitch on “Feel it Still,” the band’s most popular song, but the rest went smoothly. Honorable mention to bassist Zachary Carothers on The Wall, which was absolutely gorgeous.
A rare walk for milk and bones
Presenting one of their rare 2022 shows, the duo Milk and Bone, made up of Lawrence Lafond Boehn and Camille Poliquin, knew how to convey the infectious spirit of complicity, leading many spectators, fixated on the beach, to join the party. in front of the theatre. The group has been on hiatus since 2020, preparing for a new album cocoon, which will be launched on October 28. The first single from this composition, Moviesseems to be the favorite song of the audience, who know the words by heart.
Pierre Koenders dance party
Soon the gray sky was forgotten with the colorful dance and music of Pierre Coanders. The Congolese musician based in Montreal presented several tracks from his album Jose Luis and the paradox of loveIt was released last April and some of the songs made it known as “Sexus Plexus Nexus”.
