Calamity Jeanne, the Pocket Orchestra – LOUIE of the Week

Last week, Orme Radio of Italy celebrated International LOUIE LOUIE Day with a lively 90 minute special!

They closed the show with a wonderful LOUIE I’d never heard before – a French band known as Calamity Jeanne, the Pocket Orchestra. Here’s a little description they provided of themselves, translated by the Google Language Tools robots…

A bitter blues, a light-hearted guajira (?), a retro-fanciful swing, a sophisticated reggae, an impertinent folk, a undulating bossa … you will get Calamity Jeanne, the Pocket Orchestra, a bold vibe to warm your old bones and To embrace your hearts.

Take a listen to their BandCamp post, and buy a copy of their album if you like ’em!

I do think it’s a keeper, and I hope they play San Francisco some day!

    Where’s my Maui Louie? I did a version for you, but I don’t see it on the website. It was March 2017 (right after the SEVA Foundation event) Thanks, Albert
