If we start summer with music

The month of June comes and we decided to prepare for summer with our friends Eco informants of the Green Team. What will happen this summer? Sumer will be festive and musical gift for Marron Rouge: you are invited today to go listen and see all the musical events in the region.


Dès aujourd’hui débute la 9ème édition Nuits Sonores,

festival de musique électronique bien connu et reconnu, du1er au 5 juin 2011 à Lyon .

Today begins the 9th Nuits Sonores, electronic music festival well known and recognized, From 1 to 5 June 2011 in Lyon. Notable events in there today on the Place de l’Hotel de Ville in Lyon Laurent Garnier. Frankly this guy there did much to electronic music and more he is humble and talented

Who isLaurent Garnier ? :

: Laurent Garnier (also known as Choice), (born 1 February 1966, Boulogne-sur-Seine, France) is a French techno music producer and DJ. Garnier began DJ-ing in Manchester during the late 1980s. By the following decade, he had a broad stylistic range, able to span deep house, Detroit techno, trance and jazz. He added production work to his schedule in the early 1990s, and recorded several albums.

During the late 1970s, Garnier discovered clubbing with his brother in Paris, where his family lived. He loved disco but also listened to all other contemporary musical genres including reggae, funk, and punk. At the age of 16, Garnier had started recording and mixing music on tape recorders.

In 1984, Garnier started working as a waiter for the French Embassy in London. He stayed there for a year and a half before moving to Manchester in 1986. Living in England he discovered the booming UK house scene and started DJing. (Source Wikipédia)


Here is the whole programm of Nuits Sonores

The icing on the cake is that the Nuits Sonores is engaged in sustainable development and solidarity.


The second musical event we want to talk about what isLes Nuits de Fourvière from June 7  to July 30 2011:
Beyond the eclectic program with a few stars that go to see
NUITS AU BENIN ,Angélique Kidjo , Le Tout-Puissant Orchestre Poly-Rythmo Gangbé brass band : I never saw her but her voice and the orchestra will probably decide me to see her
PSY , Les 7 doigts de la main : Since I have heard of this event….

JOSHUA REDMAN / BRAD MEHLDAU DUO : I already saw Brad Mehldau more than 3 time et this pianist is really talented

I would like to have seen Sting but 55€ for the concert…..

Sustainable actions of Les Nuits de Fourvière




Of course there is also the Festival of Music June 21 (day of summer), 2011, but I’m as excited as the first editions: too much commercial and too many events and not always of high quality.


A third event that is dear to my heart for many reasons it’s Jazz in Vienne from 28/06/2011 to 13/07/2011. The things I want to see:
Ahmad Jamal :
Return to forever with Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, Franck Gambale, Jean-Luc Ponty :
Herbie Hancock / Wayne Shorter / Marcus Miller – Musical Direction : Marcus Miller :


Here is a good way to start summer in Lyon.


And the important news for the month of July : on 21st, Marron Rouge will have his first birthday


Have a good summer

    Des coussins 100% recyclables, tous les tee-shirts des équipes en coton équitable, l’ensemble des documents distribués (programmes, flyers, programmes de salle…) imprimés sur du papier des marques PEFC et FSC… et bientôt j’espère en plus des gobelets recyclables aussi ! Tout change, c’est bien cette prise de conscience un peu partout, et, les grands rassemblements sont une super vitrine pour promouvoir ce genre d’initiative : et le tout en musique !!
    Merci pour l’info.
