What you'll do

Winner of the "Airbnb Experiences Mentor Award 2019".
Now 5 years of passion sharing this Experience ! Even Brian CHESKY (Airbnb CEO) was a surprise guest once, and wrote : "The highlight of my Paris stay was this Experience that I, my girlfriend and our families had there. The cabaret was in Sylvain’s living room, and my mom sat in the front !"
So you'll be my guests for a special dinner party and cabaret concert; we'll meet for an apéritif and buffet first, before the show starts.
Aka Silvano Jo, I have put on a cross-dressed show of popular "Chanson Française", accompanied by my wonderful pianist/accordionist.
We'll go on a musical parisian journey through time, so you get an overview of over a century of the French Songbook, in many diffrent styles :
The Montmartre epoch of Yvette Guilbert and "Café Concert" (1900's), Vaudeville stars like Mistinguett or Josephine Baker, the glorious Pigalle era (1910-20's), major songwriters and singers like Edith Piaf or Charles Trenet (1930-40-50's), Serge Gainsbourg or Charles Aznavour (1960-70's); tongue french pop and more, until modern singer-songwriter Stromae. We'll tell you in english about the singers & songs' stories so you can follow and
learn about french culture and history.
Fun, emotion, and a few surpises in store ;)
After the show, we’ll have cheese & dessert, and a toast with Champagne to celebrate life and joy :))

Trained as a dancer, actor and singer, I’ve been a stage artist for over 20 years. My ultimate passion is to perform Chanson in cabaret venues, for special events, and in my "Atelier d'artiste" workshop studio for a selected audience. Accompanied by my musician, I love re-interpreting French repertory songs in my own theatrical universe and sharing this wonderful heritage to people.

Where you'll be

Come beyond a closed door ! I'm opening my home for you, my "Atelier d'artiste", a renovated workshop studio where I live and rehearse, in the up-and-coming 10th arrondissement, in the heart of the beautiful Canal St-Martin neighborhood.
I turn my place into a little theatre for you, where I set up my stage decor for the occasion, with a keyboard for my musician, and a few lights ;)
Food & drinks are served on the wooden bar of my open kitchen

Absolutely magical. I hope I never forget this night. Sylvain is an excellent host, cook, performer, person. What a generous act of art and hospitality. Highly, highly recommend this experience. I am traveling solo and I felt so comfortable and welcome. What a memory.

Un grand merci à Sylvain qui a su rendre notre maman heureuse pendant cette soirée. Elle a passé un moment magique avec Sylvain et ses amis, qu'elle s'en rappellera toujours. Elle avait les yeux pétillants de joie. Elle a adoré aussi le repas fait maison par Sylvain. Un vrai delice. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir et nous conseillons cette expérience magique à tout le monde !

Book It! You Will Not Regret! *I was an English only speaker, solo traveler, attending the French show* Host(s) were Soo welcoming, considerate, and full of life. I was embraced by their hospitality, including their friends (felt like a true local vibe which was comforting). All were sharing their stories with me and I adored all the new friends I made. I didn't have to understand the French lyrics as it all FELT lovely (honestly, sounds better in french anyways 😅). Enjoyed every minute of this experience! Thank you for such a great time Sylvain! and letting me share such an occasion with your friends/family. Happy 5th!

Thank you for the lovely evening. Good food, good wine, good company, and more importantly fabulous entertainment. Providing a history of the singers was extremely helpful and gave context for their songs. A highly recommended event.
