Soir de Semaine rouse the soul with their original lively music while fusing Franco-rock with ska, reggae, folk and funk. On stage Soir de Semaine create a visually rambunctious show, dressing up in costume and painting their faces. The band has play shows in schools, bar venues and especially festivals.
Their first two albums brought the band at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Les Francofolies in Montreal and the 400th Birthday of Québec City Celebrations.
Soir de Semaine has been rockin’ the Yukon and the rest of Canada since 2003. With three school teachers in the group, this band of “children at heart” provide education through music, as they’ve developed outreach programs for students in order to perform in schools, and bring their energy to everyone from elementary to high school. Just as comfortable on the festival stage as in a school gym, Soir de Semaine believes interaction is key to any performance, and they engage their audiences to participate in the show, bringing the joys of music and performance and creating an atmosphere of fun around them.
