THURSDAY JULY 5 : TONY PETRUCCIANI QUARTET
Tony Petrucciani offers us the pleasures of his time-honoured musical brio. Influenced by guitarists Wes Montgomery, Barney Kessel and Joe Pass, Tony Petrucciani is acclaimed for his magical solo riffs, swinging style and glorious harmonics. He we also give a musical tribute to his son, the fabulous pianist Michel Petrucciani.

THURSDAY JULY 19 : BOMBA TITINKA 
An exotic marriage of old-fashioned swing and cutting-edge electronics lends this band a unique musical entente that simply makes you want to get up and dance. A not-to-be-missed international set !

THURSDAY JULY 26 : THE ZEMBLAS 
The Zemblas have gone back to their roots to offer jazz lovers a groovy and powerful blend of soul and rhythm'n'blues reminiscent of the Swinging Sixties !

THURSDAY AUGUST 2 : MUDDY'S & THE MAG
A voyage into a welcoming world of profound, warm, and exhilarating music! The spirit of the blues in its purest form. Muddy’s & The M.A.G offer a complex electrified sound far removed from the usual power trios, offering resolutely feline, sensual and elegant music to the ears...

THURSDAY AUGUST 9 : THE SHOESHINERS BAND 
The Shoeshiners orchestra was born out of the young generation's desire to renew ties with the origins of Count Basie swing, Jimmie Lunceford and Chick Webb. A joyful journey back to the days when crowds danced the jitterbug at the Savoy Ballroom and in the streets of Harlem.

FRIDAY AUGUST 24 : CHINA MOSES
Dee Dee Bridgewater's daughter China Moses offers us her incomparably beautiful voice, coupled with an impressive stage presence. She will be presenting her new album "Nightintales" – a voyage into the world of jazz, soul and swing.

Listen to Michel, organiser of Jazz à Berne taking place throughout the summer at the Chateau de Berne in the Var.
