See you tonight.

Welcome to Oh My Guinguette! The Opening Night of Le Festival 2016.

Join us for an evening of all things French to start the weekend festivities with a Boum!

Doors will open at 5pm with a DJ set by Djulian Flinch who will bring his French Touch to fill the Guinguette with good vibes, followed by Paris-Montmartre for some French classics from New Caledonia.

We are also lucky to have New Caledonian band Boagan who will be bringing their reggae, soul and rock influences from the sunny island.

And last but not least, we are bringing to Brisbane La Mauvaise Réputation, a French gypsy swing bunch of virtuosos. They are authentic interpreters of the wild passion of 1930s Parisian jazz, and the melodies of classic French chanson. A four piece ensemble of vocals/guitar, accordion, double-bass and guitar. The repertoire includes interpretations of timeless songs from Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Serge Gainsbourg and Django Reinhardt.
