Caravan Palace kicked off their European tour with their second night spent here in Scotland, right here in Glasgow at the 02 Academy. The group is comprised of 6 band members: Arnaud Vial - programmation, Charles Deleporte - contrebasse, Tøøstøø - trombone, Colitis Zoé - lead singer, Victor Raimondeau - saxophone, Paul-Marie Barbier - piano, vibraphone and let me tell you, they know how to make you want to dance. Dance vibes were all around me when they were playing and it was super hard not to drop my camera and start jumping with the crowd who were right behind me.
These guys are a French electronic music band based in Paris and who take their musical influences from bands such as: Django Reinhardt, Vitalic, Lional Hampton and Daft Punk. The energy that their lead singer Colitis Zoé gave out was so powerful and positive and for me, going to a concert is all about the performance of the band as well as listening to their music through speakers so loud that it rattles your bones. If you haven't heard of these guys before, go give them a listen and if they are coming to a concert venue near you, buy a ticket!
