Relive the magical atmosphere of June 16, 2018 at the Splendid

Saturday June 16th it was held a Concert dinner at the hotel**** Vacances Bleues Splendid with a great French singer-songwriter artist: André Manoukian, a renowned artist who came to Dax for the reopening of the Splendid, this evening was a real success according to the more than 200 guests present (from Dax and the 4 corners of France who came for the occasion)! 

A real one man show mixing a solo piano concert of the artist's compositions and moments when the artist tells the secret story of jazz, using his talents as an actor and host. For André Manoukian, playing at the Splendid in a mythical Art Deco venue of the 1930s reminds him of these places, refuges for musicians of the Flamboyant era of jazz and big bands.

A show mixed with emotion and humour by a generous and accessible artist who played "sold out" in front of more than 200 people where guests were able to enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by Chef Gregory Chevalier and his team.

At the end of the dinner, André Manoukian answered the room's reminders by playing one last song and then invited all the teams to come on stage to thank them for their professionalism, each one taking the floor to share the passion of his profession. A very beautiful image according to the customers who greeted a dynamic and united professional team.

We bring you back to life the atmosphere of this magical and emotional evening, and we look forward to seeing you at the next event!
