Michel LEEB in Vendôme!

Renowned for his comedic talents over the last three decades of the 20th century, Michel Leeb is renowned for his caricatured imitations and sketches based on vocal sound effects. Influenced by the performances of Jerry Lewis, he put on a very physical show on the biggest stages, including the Olympia.

Today, Michel Leeb is accompanied by the eight formidable musicians of the group “les Brass Messengers”, directed by Dominique Rieux. They offer a swinging rhythm and a breathtaking brass section!

He revisits a host of hits from the 50s, 60s and 70s, adding his own boundless energy that makes all the difference. From Trenet to Aznavour, via Ray Charles and Sinatra, he invites you to rediscover this timeless music, which speaks to the young and evokes many memories for the old.

After more than 180 concerts, including a month and a half at the Casino de Paris to celebrate his 40th anniversary, Michel Leeb presents an extraordinary show, accompanied by talented jazz musicians.

An elegant event not to be missed!
