If you’re wondering the streets or home watching TV
Feeling bored, undecided, full of melancholy
Grab your coat, get your hat, turn that sadness to glee
Come and join our French party at the mighty Wheaty
You won’t hear a bar of Lennon or McCartney
But your hearts will be filled with a French melody
We will step back in history, remembering things past
All things French should I say, as it is Bastille Day
When the French all rose up, kicked the crown, let him down
Wasn’t fun for King Louis, but we’ll have a blast!

Shows this weekend, plus new review

With the last 2 shows for the fringe coming up this weekend, we thought we’d post this from BWW review:

“Imagine yourself transported to an intimate French bar with luxurious, deep red velvet curtains, mirrors set into dark wood panelled walls, couples settled into cosy booths, the room filled with a hazy smoke and, on stage, a chanteuse of inimitable style and full of joie de vivre. This is A Night in Paris – Louise Blackwell and The French Set.”

Tickets available now from the 2018 Adelaide Fringe Site
