Take a slow, sophisticated ride on the Bateau-Mouche in the company of Christine Tassan et les Imposteures and their gypsy jazz. While excelling in the studio, these veteran musicians are particularly comfortable onstage: for proof, look no further than their Festival appearance in 2010, when they reeled out the joyous album Pas manouche, c'est louche. Renowned for their enthusiasm and contagious good vibe, this unstoppable swing quartet takes to the waves to helm the jazz cruise with C’est l’heure de l’apéro. It’s Happy Hour! A dinner-cruise aboard the most luminous venue in the city, with a menu courtesy of chef-owner Louis-François Marcotte’s Simpléchic Traiteur.
Boarding at 6:30 p.m. at Jacques-Cartier quay of the old Port of Montreal, returning at 10 p.m.
