booked Frere Manouche for their event

“Every Gypsy/swing band in the world aspires to play at Le Que and these guys 'stormed' it at their premier performance. We are so impressed with them, that we've booked several gigs & other projects for next year. They are must 'see' for their individual technical abilities, and they are just great, easy guys to work with. They won't disappoint!”
