Elliott Murphy & Olivier Durand

M. Le Maire du 6e arrondissement introducing Elliott .

Elliott Murphy & the Normandy all star band is playing an unusual free gig in one of the reception room of the 6th district 's Paris Town Hall. The 6th district is on the famous left bank and the Town Hall just in front of the Saint Sulpice church which is famous now for being in the -DaVinci Code- and 2 min 's walk from the St Germain des Pres church. Lots of people ( around 500 ) so the reception room is full. Many fans and some posh guests from the Left Bank.
Elliott is living in Paris for many years now and he's playing quite often here .
Never been disappointed with this american songwritter his catalogue is excellent and his shows are always great .
Tonight is no exception, what can I say ? Another fucking great gig.
How is it possible that he's not selling out stadium ? It's the greatest mistery of rock !
Short set of "just " 90 min ( curfew at 10:30 pm ) usually he's on for 3 to 4 hours .

Check his myspace if you don't know him he deserves it :
