Claire’s pop up petit cabaret presents: -Promenade à Paris

Promenade à Paris is a potent Parisian cocktail of music, tap dance and joie de vivre.

From the dynamic team that created The Paris Cats, this delightful cabaret is a musical stroll through the French capital. Audiences will magically:Wander through Montmartre in the Belle Epoque.Live it up at Maxim’s in the Jazz era.Swing to gypsy jazz in the 40s in Bastille. Catch Edith Piaf performing at the Moulin Rouge.Experience existentialism in the 60s on the Left Bank.Saunter down the Seine with Serge Gainsbourg. Bop to jazz on a barge by the Pont Marie.


Pianist Chris Cody, vocalist Daniella Barda and writer/tap dancer Ruby Boukabou met while performing in jazz clubs, theatres and cabarets in Paris. Their unique chemistry was woven over many late Parisian nights in jazz caves full of song, dance, debate and discovery. Now, with Promenade à Paris, they are serving Australian audiences this potent Parisian cocktail of music, tap dance and joie de vivre.


Chris CodyPianist and composer Chris Cody lived in Paris for 25 years where he worked with numberous jazz musicians and with artists such as Carla Bruni, Michel Jonasz, Belle du Berry (Paris Combo) and Marcel Azolla (Jacque Brel’s accordionist). He also performed in French theatre productions such as Le Gros, la Vache et le Mainate, (Theatre du Champs Elysee) Jazzie Josie B (Le Trianon, Montmartre) and Crochambule (Bastille).  In Australia Chris has performed with The Paris Cats, Baby et Lulu and Excuse The French as well as leading his own jazz group (Chris Cody Coalition) at festivals and concerts.

She flows smoothly between styles- from Broadway tunes to Big Band, modern jazz to Bossa Nova. A passionate performer with a great sense of humour, Daniella’s gigs are always a treat to attend whether they be in a piano bar in the Latin Quarter, a jazz cave in the Marais or at the Festival d’Avignon.
