▓ QUOTES ▓
No one really knows who or what Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant are exactly.
Channeling an extraordinarily uplifting and utterly joyous concoction of Cumbia, Latin rhythm, Afro-Cuban guitars, and Arabic-flavoured organ, everyone in the audience tonight stops trying to fathom exactly what’s happening and just starts dancing. If you get the chance do go and see Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant, go. There are few bands who have the ability to illicit such an immediate sense of merry revelry.
Dreaming of Pop
Orchestre du Mont Plaisant are one of the strangest band we've heard in a long time, sounding like the soundtrack of some undergroung 60's art flick where the protagonist wanders around Paris chased by strangely attired Russian Spies
Orchestre du Mont-Plaisant are an imaginary super group. Unless you catch them in hi-fidelity London Easters real life you'd reckon to be listening to 2 fifths The Doors (sleezy organ and stomp bass) one 5th Hank Marvin, and one splendidly gelling 5th of cajun (ish) accordian.The fifth fifth sets all in head bopping motion with perfectly
uncomplicated yet striking chops. An uplifting gem of coalescent enterprise.
