Annie Martin and The Greenwoods & The Grass – Special The Big Chill | Saturday January 23rd at 6 pm

Selby’s Band | Saturday January 30th at 6 pm
Their positive energy and chemistry will make you dance and sing to a mix of rock, folk with hints of Latin flavours, Louise Selby, vocals and acoustic guitar, Jean-François Prud’homme on bass, Mark Di Claudio on drums and Martin Perreault on electric guitar.

 

Emmanuelle Boucher | Saturday February 6th at 6 pm
Emmanuelle Boucher charmed the judges on the 7th season of La Voix. The Journal de Montréal described her as « the rare gem »  of the season.  During her cover of “Ce soir on danse à Naziland”, Alex Nevsky turned his chair around, delighted by the confident performance. At the dawn of her 27 years and with 10 years of musical experience, Emmanuelle has made her way in the world of corporate shows.  Surrounded by seasoned musicians, the young artist promises you a great country-style party!

Jozzy presents a varied repertoire of jazz-blues, pop, soul, R&B, rock…in full band version! A perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
