RACINE — Paris La Nuit will make their long-awaited return as part of the Jean’s Jazz Series at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave.
Mixing jazz, gypsy, chansons, Latin, tango and pop into a performance, Paris La Nuit will transport the audience to a Parisian cafe. The group’s repertoire features everything from the music of French singers Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg to their own renditions of songs by Guns N’ Roses, Django Reinhardt and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Created in 2001 by Joe Mooney, Jean’s Jazz is an annual fundraiser for the Racine Theatre Guild in memory of Joe’s wife, Jean. Jean was a jazz devotee and dedicated volunteer at the Guild, driving Joe to continue growing the series year after year.
