Vermenton Plage

Produced in France in the 80s to try out Cajun music, this group took its name from its house bottom, a village in L’Yonne, north of Bourgogne. The associates of the music group had been Eric Martin (accordion, melodeon, violin), Charly Caugant (violin), Vincent Giarrusso (violin/bass), and Alain Serres (electric guitar), with all doubling on vocals. Afterwards, Michel Billard (melodeon), and Dirk Powell (accordion, violin, banjo) had been also from the music group. Among the music in the music group’s repertoire are ‘Les Cajuns De Churchpoint’, ‘El Homme Marié’, ‘Vermenton One-Step’, ‘El Étoile Au-Dessus De Ma Tête’, ‘La Prairie Ronde’, ‘Interface Arthur Blues’, and ‘Lundi Matin’. A disclosing documentary film of Vermenton Plage was manufactured in the 80s by Cajun filmmaker Randall Labry that could be discerned the performers’ commitment and musicianship. In 1998 the music group visited the united states and was initially runner-up, with ‘Lache Pas La Patate’, at a competition in Press Bayou, Virginia, USA.
