Vive Paris – French Bands, Ensembles & Musicians London

French Bands, Ensembles & Musicians London

Vive Paris is a charming and sophisticated acoustic quartet, amplified according to your requirements. They perform instrumental and vocal songs ideal for listening and dancing to.

They can also perform as a solo accordionist or as a duo or trio act.

They enjoy performing for concerts, festivals, weddings, parties and more. We can also walk around the tables as we play for that “Je ne sais quoi” feeling.

But Not for Me

Many thanks for all your hard work – sounded wonderful, really added to the atmosphere. If I ever need an accordion player in the future I won’t hesitate to contact you or recommend you!
