Winner of the "Airbnb Experiences Mentor Award 2019", after 3 years of passion sharing this Experience ! Even Brian CHESKY (Airbnb CEO) was a surprise guest once, and wrote : "The highlight of my Paris stay was this Experience that I, my girlfriend and our families had there. The cabaret was in Sylvain’s living room, and my mom sat in the front !" So you'll be my guests for a special dinner party and cabaret performance; we'll meet for an apéritif and buffet first, before the show starts. Aka Silvano Jo, I have put on a cross-dressed show of popular "Chanson Française", accompanied by my wonderful pianist/accordionist. We'll go on a musical parisian journey through time, so you get an overview of over a century of the French Songbook, in many diffrent styles : The Montmartre epoch of Yvette Guilbert and "Café Concert" (1900's), Vaudeville stars like Maurice Chevalier, Mistinguett or Josephine Baker, the glorious Pigalle era (1910-20's), major singer/songwriters like Edith Piaf or Charles Trenet (1930-40-50's), Serge Gainsbourg or Charles Aznavour (1960-70's); tongue french pop and more, until modern singer-songwriter Stromae. I'll tell you in english about the singers & songs' stories. Fun, emotion, and a few surpises in store ;) Singers welcome for an open mic song. After the show, we’ll have cheese & dessert, and have a toast with Champagne to celebrate life and joy :))
Trained as a dancer, actor and singer, I’ve been a stage artist for over 20 years. My passion today is to perform Chanson in cabaret venues, for special events, and in my "Atelier d'artiste" workshop studio. I love re-interpreting French repertory songs in my own theatrical universe.
Buffet Appetizers, traditional delicatessen, raw veggie cuts & dip, homemade quiche & soup, traditional cheese, baguette,…
Drinks Red or white wine, beer, juice or water, and Champagne for dessert. Coffe, tea or herb tea.
Come beyond a closed door ! I'm opening my home for you, my "atelier d'artiste", a renovated workshop studio, where I live and rehearse, in the up-and-coming 10th arrondissement of Paris, just next to the beautiful Canal St-Martin scenery. I turn my place into a little theatre where I set up my stage decor for the occasion, with a keyboard for my musician. Food & drinks are served on the wooden bar of my open kitchen.
