The Bad Reputation CD has been getting airplay on French radio stations RFI, FIP, and Radio Nova. Pierre was recently interviewed by Radio France International (RFI) on the occasion of the Brassens expo at Cité de la Musique in Paris. Hear this fascinating segment that highlights some of the gifted musicians carrying the torch of Brassens' oeuvre HERE.

Bad Reputation has a bunch of great shows planned in New York and abroad; they will play beloved music-bistro Barbes on Sunday March 27 and Williamsburg's hip frenchy lounge Zebulon on Saturday, April 2. At the end of April, they will do two shows in Switzerland and play the Brassens Festival at Vaison-la-Romaine, France. And for our friends in the north, Bad Reputation will play in Montreal on May 20 at Le Divan Orange with Canadian gypsy swing masters Le Hot Club de Ma Rue. Check here for SHOW DETAILS.
