Les Hôtesses d’Hilaire
“The Hilaire Hostesses are always a little funny, a little light and obviously on the party.” – The Auditory Channel
Created in 1972, the clever troupe composed of Serge Brideau (voice and guitar), Mico Roy (guitars), Michel Vienneau (bass), Léandre Bourgeois (keyboards) and Maxence Cormier (drums) – comes out of the cellar to Hilaire Brideau all of following the bug of the year 2000 issue to live fully by the end of the world. Strongly influenced by the music of the 1970s, he launched his first album, Hilaire à boire, in 2013, which will be followed, the year after, by the opus Party de ruisseau. After having been applauded by audiences on more than 300 occasions, in Europe and across Canada, it is based in their beloved New Brunswick that Les Hôtesses records a third album in 2015, Touche- I’m not there. The latter will earn them an appointment for album of the year in the alternative category at the ADISQ and two ECMA trophies, including the one for the Group recording of the year, making Hostesses the first French-speaking group to win the prize.
