Ne Nous Quittes Pas – Mathieu’s Last Stand With Mademoiselle at 2 Kolegas…
It’s a transient city, a transient lifestyle and it’s bound to happen sooner or later to most expat musos.. they leave! It was Mathieu Wahiche‘s turn… On a rainy November friday night at 2 Kolegas, friends and musicians gathered for one of the last 2 gigs he would be playing with his bandmates in Mademoiselle et son Orchestre.
As they say, he came, he saw, he played and he conquered… We had fun dancing the night away to old French jazz ditties, having a few drinks and here’s hoping the paths cross again soon. What happens to Mademoiselle now? Well, the band goes on without Mathieu for the moment but they should be fine! Marie Claude has managed plenty of transitions with musicians over the years.
It was a bit of strange night sound wise at 2K though with most of the band members having issues with sound monitors and especially the drums but alas, on that night, it didn’t matter much. We had plenty of people clapping then singing along and that’s what it’s about.
Thanks for the music, the memories, the conversations and the good times!
