Dinner and show

We've gone out twice this weekend - diner et spectacle (dinner and show) - of entirely different styles. On Friday night, a sing-along with the group Tigresses Diatoniques and their diatonic accordions. The music? French classic songs from the 1930s - 1960s. Here's an example:

On Saturday night, something entirely different. An old friend of Patrice's alerted him to a concert at Le Petit Journal Montparnasse, a Paris jazz club. The headliner Saturday night was Janet Robin, an American guitarist singer-songwriter. Janet Robin is a fantastic guitarist. As a teenager, she studied with the late Randy Rhoads. Later, she was lead guitarist in the all-girl band, Precious Metal. This was Robin's first Paris appearance.
The show was organized by friends of Patrice. Renaud Cugny plays the Hammond organ and his wife, Catherine Marie, is the tour manager. Here's a small taste of Saturday's concert:
