Welcome to my world. The world of happy years.
6 shows of French songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s that I will enjoy performing in front of your clientele, whether they are regulars or new clients attracted by these shows.
Songs, but also anecdotes, small slices of life… Emotion above all.

What’s new for tonight?
Restaurateur is a difficult job. I know that for having practiced it for a while. What I also know is that the happiness of the restaurateur is to see his room full.
But today consumption habits have changed. Home deliveries, the multitude of prepared meals, frozen or not, have contributed to making the clientele more shy, even downright homebody.
In order to attract new customers, and bring back the shy people, you have several ways. Change the menu, change the chef, or may be a softer, more innovative, more unexpected solution. Welcoming a man into your home. Lovers of these wonderful French songs and which will take your customers back to the heart of the 50s, 60s and 70s. To the heart of the happy years.
My name is Alain BAUDRILLART. When I was twenty, I was a young and handsome singer. Then, too many girls, too many nights with pure malt, champagne or other drinks and at the end military service.So, I decided to stop singing. To be honest, life decided it. During forty years, I used to work in jewelry, restaurants, and advertising. Then, retired, life was so boring that I said to myself « Why don’t you try again ? ». I bought a clavier, and I started. At the beginning, it was awful. No voice, no finger agility. Nothing.
So I understood something I didn’t get before: boy you do work if you want to succeed. It took me four years to become again an acceptable pianist and a singer as well.
They’re certainly some guys like me, travelling with their clavier around the world. Singing with talent songs they wrote or not. Difference with me is I knew, at TV shows, radios, studios or other places, most of the artists I used to sing. And by the time, life gave me emotions and sensibility I could today put in the songs I sing. This is really important, because if you’ve known an artist personnally, in his life, simply as a man, you sing his songs differently. This is the reason why I sing Charles TRENET, Gilbert BÉCAUD, Charles AZNAVOUR and so many other french singers in a different way.
