Listening (and dancing) to Eric Gauthier and Band at the Jazzclub Bix

Hi guys! I had such a blast last night. Eric Gauthier and Band were playing at Jazzclub Bix.

Some of you might wonder now: “Wait a minute, I remember you wrote an article about this guy last year. But that one was about ballet…?!” Right. Well, Eric Gauthier is not only an amazing ballet dancer and choreographer, nope, this guy was blessed with one more talent: He’s also a great singer/songwriter. Well, some things in life are just not fair… Zwinkerndes Smiley  Anyway. Back to his concert yesterday.

The Bix is not very big so it felt cozy and private in there. The audience was very mixed. I think a lot of his ballet fans were there. You saw not only one slightly grey head Smiley But don’t get me wrong, I think it´s awesome that he brings together people of all ages. It’s the same with his ballet performances, only that there it’s the teenage audience that sticks out.

They were playing a lot of his classic songs plus one new one that is not released yet. It took the audience a bit to start to move – not my friend Jules and me though, we never waste a minute when we´ve got the chance to danceSmiley mit geöffnetem Mund. If you like singer/songwriter inspired pop and rock music, Eric Gauthier and Band is for you!

To give you an idea what they sound like, here are some YouTube-links (from the YouTube-Channel of Rainhardt Albrecht-Herz):

What might interest you too, is that Eric Gauthier was born in Montreal, Canada, and moved to Stuttgart in 1996. He learned to love this city and even wrote a song about his “new Heimat”: the Spätzlesong Smiley mit geöffnetem Mund

If you want more Eric Gauthier, you should visit his “Colours International Dance Festival” which takes place in Stuttgart between 25. June and 12. July 2015. I will definitely catch the one or other performance and maybe even workshop. Can’t wait for it! Smiley
