C’Dimanche is a French band founded in 2002 initially as a french songwriting duet. They claim themselves with a good sense of humour as the inventors of the “Sailors’ Blues” music style. The band is located in Caen (Normandy, France), close to the sea and composes their own songs and ballads on friendship, love and sailing. The sea, the girls in harbours, the sailors’ wives scruting the horizon, the old seadogs telling stories about distant islands… These are the favourite source of inspiration for C’Dimanche.
When on stage, C’Dimanche also performs several cover songs. And since sept.08, C’Dimanche has expanded with an experienced rhythm section (bass and drums) and a talented harmonicist. C’Dimanche performs regulary in bars, small venues and festivals of Normandy.
The band is :
Didier CONNAN : lead vocal, guitar
Eric LEVESQUE : guitar, backing vocal
Serge DELLI-CICCHI : harmonica
Jean-Noël FOSSEY : bass guitar
Alain SOHIER : drums, guitar, mandolin, backing vocal

Doctor Rag is a french composer who delivers a first album entirely dedicated to ragtime. Why ragtime ?
Ragtime is an interesting paradox: this music style is both 'fresh' because of its sense of melody, its simplicity and at the same time it is old-fashioned - but charming. MySurround.com is open to all kinds of music style, mixing old-style music with brand-new technologies.
The « Duo EIAEL » is a french musicians duet, composed of Raphaelle Bellanger on viola and Emmanuel Bellanger on piano. They are respectively sister and brother, from the same highly skilled musicians family, the two of them being graduated from the prestigious French national national music school of Paris (CNSMDP) and holding several prizes.
Raphaëlle received education from Huguette Déat, Jacques St-Yves, Alexis Galpérine, Suzanne Guessner on violin and from de Pierre-Henri Xuereb on viola.
Aside from parental teaching, Emmanuel had musical instruction under cellists Guy Besnard and Roland Pidoux, and a supplementary instruction on piano by masters Pascale Dumay and Marie-Christine Calvet.
Eggblister is a French alternative rock band. All the lyrics to the songs are in English, despite pressure from the French media to produce songs in the home-language ; perhaps due to the fact that half of the band is of British origin and also for the belief that the art of music should have nothing to do with any form of nationalism whatsoever. What counts is the music ; sometimes heavy, sometimes soft. Sometimes funky, sometimes punky. Eggblister’s sound is built upon a tight and tasty bass and drum section which upholds aerial guitar riffs and a melodic feminine voice. Most compositions are the fruit of spontaneous improvisation. On stage, Eggblister will put together a variety of moods, flying high, creeping low, dashing fast, walking slow ; one will be enchanted by the occasional little ballad, then knocked out for six by the thump of bass, drum and distortion just waiting round the corner. The band finds its influence among the repertories of widely varied bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, No doubt, The Police, Queens Of The Stone Age or Jeff Buckley. The four members of the band started sparking up their stuff early in the year 2008.
