Every public would agree one thing yet:  </strong></p> <p> <strong>« les Rois du Macadam, it is brilliant. It is beautiful. <u>It makes you feel good.</u> »</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Rois_du_macadam2015_mailis_snoeck_1-1459432425" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/297957/Rois_du_Macadam2015_Mailis_Snoeck_1-1459432425.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>What is this?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Les Rois du Macadam adapt and play some old french songs, inspired from early american jazz, tango, musette or even « chanson réaliste »  - with humour and poetry. We must admit it: they adore those oldish tunes. Those are like a fantastic treasure found in grand dad’s apartment. You clean it, take care of it and then realize that it swings ! It is fun ! It is moving ! It is gorgeous ! Bam ! You just want to share it with the whole world !</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://lesroisdumacadam.wix.com/rois-du-macadam#!nous--couter/c1jmr" target="_blank">Listen here</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Gozettes6-1457713915" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/289415/gozettes6-1457713915.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em><strong>Vocals &amp; accordions:</strong></em></p> <p> <em><strong>the delightful Galinette (alias Marie-Eve) &amp; the gorgeous Fanette (alias Fanny)</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A little souvenir from a tour :</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FNVjHBbpSfMM%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DNVjHBbpSfMM%26feature%3Dyoutu.be&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FNVjHBbpSfMM%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A small extract of a gig at the « Café de la Rue » in Brussel :</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FhSl9QoLvxQM%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DhSl9QoLvxQM&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FhSl9QoLvxQM%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>A disc ? Really ?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Les Rois du Macadam had been travelling and playing for years, wandering their moustaches and braces in every pub, street art festival or cosy venue around. Never did they just think of recording their music!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Indeed, none but the wonderful audience had insisted so many times that they could not decline any longer: « Let’s put this groove on microgrooves ! » they claimed. They roll up their sleeves. They sweat. They suffer. They are exhausted. The concentration is intense. The work is huge.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="2014_rdm_alex_-_ma__lis_snoeck024_cpr-1455625396" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/278598/2014_RDM_Alex_-_Ma__lis_Snoeck024_cpr-1455625396.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><i>Ukulele &amp; banjolele : Sir Thiburge alias Alexandre</i></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Gosh ! but… How ?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> It surely ain't an easy task. First, you gotta find a nice talented guy to record, second a smart one to draw the album art and cover, then another one to manufacture the discs… And after all, find the way to pay all that stuff! Gasp.</p> <p> « We must ask some generous contributors for a financial help. Oh, yes, definitely, we must! And prepare lovely gifts to thank them. Perfect ! Zou !
