C’est Si LeBon Band

Thanks Melbourne Jazz Jammers for this great website!

Inspired by the great tradition of American soul music and the fusion of blues, jazz, R&B and French compositions, Chris G Le Bon created his style. His show  ‘PARIS to NEW YORK’  is a unique mixture of French well known songs (originally written by French composers), but made popular to the world in their American version…with a touch of Rhythm’N’Blues! We aim to have a great night!

Chris (vocals/bass) is accompanied by acclaimed Melbourne musicians:  Alex Yarosh (guitar); Roman Syrek (piano accordion/trombone); Orlando Zilich (Bass) and Marek Podstawek (drums).  Come and enjoy the unique mixture of smooth ballads, vibrant swings and funky soul music in French and English.
