Let’s meet in real life

This musical pair has been performing in the Kingston area for a few years now. They are frequently seen in downtown Kingston as part of the city’s official Canada Day celebrations, the Buskers’ Rendezvous, or as part of the Summer On Sydenham program on the patio stage at Sydenham Street at Princess. They are featured regularly at the Boy’s and Girl’s Club’s annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic and at events put on by the Kingston Frontenac Public Library.

About

Get to know Panche Eh

Panache Eh is a dynamic and fun loving musical duo who love to perform for children and adults alike. The band loves to play traditional French and English children’s songs with humour and joy. The show includes furry friends, puppets Lulu Rabbit and Albert Paca (you can call him “Al”), often come out to sing when given a little encouragement. Audiences of all ages are invited to join the fun while they rock it on the ukulele, guitar, harmonica, dulcimer and tambourines. The best part is when the audience participates as an impromptu rhythm section, using the instruments provided by the band to share!

Panache Eh is comprised of two experienced French Immersion Ontario Certified Teachers committed to promoting children’s joie de vivre and mental health by sharing the excitement and fun of live musical performance they can relate to, enjoy and participate in.

He comes from a bilingual Québecois family and  is happiest when he is singing, getting silly, and sharing the joy of music with children and adults alike. Being part of Panache Eh and having the chance to share the excitement of live children's music with families keeps him happy!
