Yves Giraud Band
June 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $5.00
OOAK Art Gallery and Maples present the Yves Giraud Band, Thursday June 8, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00 in the Gallery. Cost for the concert is $5.00.
The Yves Giraud Band’s show encompasses all of Yves’ original soulful rock music, creating an ethereal experience with a universal sound. Yves’ music hints of Maroon 5, John Mayer, Sting, and Seal.
Yves Giraud was born a Frenchman. At an early age, he began playing piano and playing small gigs and parties in southern France with his band Attila. After moving to California in the late 80s and playing most of the clubs in Los Angeles with several bands as either a guitarist or a bass player, Yves relocated to Florida in the mid 90s where he eventually became a full time musician in the early 2000s and the owner/operator of Studio M31, in Hollywood, FL. Over the years, Yves has had the pleasure of playing in countless bands, touring all across the States and opening for well known national artists such as Sheryl Crow, the Steve Miller Band, Chris Isaak and the Doobie Brothers among others.
In late 2013, he moved to Burnsville, NC and formed the Yves Giraud Band, a five piece group that only plays Yves’ original music. The band includes Eric Witherspoon on harmonica, fiddle, bass clarinet, flute and backup vocals, Jody Pred on the bass and backup vocals, and Brian Bennett on the drums, subbing for band member Andrew Branum. The Yves Giraud Band is slowly making a name for itself playing across North Carolina and building a loyal and growing fan base. The latest project with the band is a new album recorded at Yves’ own recording studio, Studio M31.
