La Mauvaise Réputation are Jon Delaney (guitar), Paul Gillett (vocals & guitar) and Enzo Ruberto (bass). The band formed in 2009 with the aim of recreating the beautiful French music of the 20s, 30s and 40s. Their repertoire features songs from the greats of that period including Charles Trenet and Edith Piaf, and more modern additions from artists such as Serge Gainsbourg and Les Ogres du Barback. They perform in the Jazz Manouche style made famous by Parisian jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. The music is joyous and infections, the rhythms will make everyone feel like dancing, and the melodies are plucked out of the heart of old Europe. The repertoire is performed in French, staying true to the music as originally conceived. They play at the Byron Brewery Buddha Bar tonight.
