Lemmy Constantine, Curtis Stigers and Dee Dee Bridgewater at the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2014


Meet these artists on stage at the Opéra Garnier de Monte-Carlo on Saturday 29 November 2014, for an unforgettable evening!

Lemmy Constantine

Lemmy ConstantineSon of a Tcheque prima ballerina and actor Eddie Constantine, Lemmy Constantine discovers Django Reinhardt during a stay in Los Angeles where he is studying guitare! 
Back in France, he records « Manouche-Land » in 2004, an album of self released of original tracks. In 2007, he signs «Meeting Sinatra & Django » with Rocky Gresset and Costel Nitescu. He then performs in numerous jazz festivals (Jazz in Vienna, in Nice, Grand Palais, Montmartre Arenas,..) as well as in various clubs.



In 2010 he records his third album « In Difference ». He also records documentaries and commercials, in which his deep voice embodies, throughout the world, the perpetual charmer. Today, Lemmy returns to music that reflects his mixed origins and plays with his roots; that of child born to artist parents, a Bohemian at heart, infused with Sinatra and Django.


In a musical style where guitar normaly plays centre stage, the musician delivers his personal message through his voice. His guitar is there to accompany him, but it is his warm and and clear voice, so recognisable, that delivers the intemporal classics.
