So I’ve veered off a little on this pop-tart pick this time round because I was blown away when I saw this group. Over the winter holidays I took a trip to Winnipeg, Manitoba, to visit a friend of mine and as a special Christmas treat she took me out to a local indie holiday concert. Little did I know what I was in for! I was assuming that it was going to be a pretty cool and hip show with good music and a holiday cheer going around. Turns out I was about to get pretty much front row seats to watch some Juno Award Winners in this little trendy 400ish person theatre in WinterPeg Winnipeg. The show was called “JP Hoe Hoe Hoe Holiday Show” and I would highly suggest looking the guy up, he has some awesome tunes and a few stellar Christmas songs. The one’s who really stole my heart were the girls of Chic Gamine, they blew me away the moment they were spotlighted. They were mostly there singing backup for Mr JP Hoe, which I think is super awesome that a Juno Award winning group would be so down to earth to chill in the background. That shows real class in my books.


The group is made up of Andrina Turenne, Ariane Jean, Alexa Dirks, Annick Bremault and the beats are supplied by Sacha Daoud. Alexa is the main vocalist of the group and she really captured me when she was singing. My boyfriend better watch out because I may have even fallen in love. They hail from Winnipeg and Montreal. The next big endeavor for the group is launching in the U.S. this year and I wish them all the best! I have tried to find a music video of these ladies but can’t seem to find one anywhere. So I have uploaded a video I took at the concert myself. I suggest if you like them to look around on YouTube and find some more stuff. Enjoy!
