Les Bonbons

Les Bonbons

Virtuoso troubadours, Les Bonbons perform vagabond pop that resonates with a shimmering wall of sound, pumped up with strings, brass and a choir of charismatic song. Their tunes stagger and swagger the streets of old London town, leaning on the murmured bon mots of vocalist Fred. Meanwhile, guitarist Billy jives like Django, sometimes with a rock’n’roll swing, sometimes with a campside flourish. Like a Franglais mash-up of The Divine Comedy or a Gallic Jarvis Cocker at a gypsy jazz bacchanal, Les Bonbons are an enthralling and intense proposition.
