Bonjour M. Bruneau et Mme Cardinal,
D’autres l’ont dit ou le diront, les plus grands spectacles sont souvent dans les petites salles.
Hier, à la Caravane, nous avons passé une agréable soirée en votre compagnie et je vous remercie de votre simplicité, générosité et surtout, de nous avoir permis d’apprécier votre talent remarquable.
L’harmonie parfaite entre la voix cristalline et puissante de Mme Cardinal et la virtuosité de l’excellent accordéoniste que vous êtes, furent la recette infaillible de cette belle soirée.
Les compositions de Mme Cardinal m’ont particulièrement émerveillé par leur profondeur et leur vérité.
Merci encore !

“STEPPING OVER THE LINE”
A Mark Violette show with Ruth Ann Fletcher.
It was a delight for Hélène Cardinal and I to participate at this Benefit for the Haskell Opera House in Stanstead. I had the opportunity to play for the first time in the United States! This is the place where the Canadian USA border crosses the Hall. The stage being in Canada, I had to step down to the crowd of spectators to cross the Frontier and play on the USA side.
An exceptional performance was given by Mark Violette at the piano and the comedian/singer Ruth Ann Fletcher. During the show, Mark Violette had his hair completely cut off while at the grand finale, for the last tune, I came on stage with my hair completely undone.

|Bal musette & Live Paintings
An un preceded success!Last Friday July the 14th 2006, Espace Sutton presented a Bal Musette that included two live Paintings. This dancing night gathered 320 people at the main Chalet of the ski station Mont Sutton, the biggest crowd ever for an indoor event in Sutton!The president of Espace Sutton, Jean Marsolais as said to be very pleased by the results of the event. “This year, we decided to present our Live Paintings event in a Bal Musette set up and the date chosen of the 14th of July was obvious since it corresponds to France’s national day and that every since the French revolution, they gather for a gigantic Bal Musette. Our event was so popular that we had to refuse quite a lot of people, the hall wasn’t big enough to accept everybody! It was a very nice evening with the joyful music of the accordionist Mario Bruneau who gave the opportunity to discover two wonderful paintings, one by Cézanne and the other by Toulouse-Lautrec” did he explained. The comedian Robert Toupin (left picture) gave an humorous presentation of the paintings with text written by Richard Leclerc. “We thanks every one who where present and also thanks to our partners and the volounteers who participated at the success of this event. We will do it again next year” the president Jean Marsolais added.
|RALLY DES GÎTES at the Mont Orford Golf club May the 06th 2006 at 7:00PM|
It is following a recent accordion makers tour in France and Italy in November 2005 that M. Giampaolo Bompezzo from the Brandoni-Bompezzo accordion maker, (the peoples who built my own accordion) hired me to represent them in their kiosk at the Frankfurt MusikMesse in Germany. So from March the 27th till April the 2nd 2006 I spent a wonderful week playing the Brandoni accordions while visiting some other exhibitors. I had big success with my AcidJazz originals. From those compositions, a CD called Accordéon NoW! will soon be available. Here is an excerpt from the title Reed My Lips.
At the Frankfurt MusikMesse, I also discovered the fabulous Viennese piano Wendl & Lung. These pianos are really fantastic and at an affordable price too.
I took the opportunity to present my Accordion MultiMedia Conference to people passing by.
I tried some rather original German percussions instruments. Schlagwerk Percussion. Their congas (Cajongas) are completely made out of wood, even the skin is wood! Take a look at a YouTube video showing me having fun. These instruments sound so nice and effortless to play, you get to concentrate on your music rather than on the technique. If you like to groove, the Schlagwerk percussion instruments are for you!
Here are some photos taken at the Brandoni-Bompezzo stand at Frankfurt’s by Martin Troppmann and Manfred Grichnik (thank you)

|Du 1er au 9 juillet 2005 Mario Bruneau, accordéoniste d’expérience et de talent, a fait du bal musette sa spécialité et de l’accordéon sa passion. Il nous fera découvrir avec bonheur l’infinie richesse de son instrument. Impossible de rester insensible aux notes et aux chansons de son répertoire, évoquant toute la joie de la fête.|
