- Sold out, Sorry
20th May 2015

French gypsy swing virtuosos, La Mauvaise Reputation, are Australia's most authentic interpreters of the wild rhythms and passion of 1930's Parisian hot jazz and the beautiful melodies of classic French chanson – sung en Francais, bien sur. 

A four piece ensemble of vocals/guitar, Paul Gillet, accordion, Salvatore Greco, double bass, Enzo Ruberto, and the extrordinary talents of internationally acclaimed manouche guitarist, Jon Delaney, they specialise in the timeless songs of Edith Piaf, Charles Trenet, Serge Gainsbourg, Jean Sablon and the unique sounds of Django Reinhardt.

La Mauvaise Reputation has performed at many festivals, jazz clubs, private functions and high-profile events right across Australia. 

An exciting new partnership between the Boite and fortyfivedownstairs, enables the Boite to present a new concert series, in the heart of Melbourne.

Don’t miss this exuberant, final concert in the May series.

Guaranteed to bring out your inner gypsy !


For over 3 decades, The Boite has been presenting music from a huge range of artists, from diverse cultural backgrounds, to Melbourne and regional Victorian music lovers.

Last year the Boite presented 93 concerts, held 133 workshops, and had an audience and participation reach of 30,500.

A highlight for 2014 was Gurrong , the 2014 Boite Millennium Chorus, where a 400 strong choir joined Shane Howard, Archie Roach and other artists, to sing “Solid Rock ” in Pitjantjatjara,( the language of the central desert people) to an audience of 2,500 people at Hamer Hall.

The Boite Schools Chorus, saw 750 children from across Victoria perform this song in Pitjantjatjara, to large audiences at Federation Square and other regional Victorian locations.
