Les Hôtesses d’Hilaire may have an offbeat sense of humour, but they’re always on beat when it comes to their lively tunes. This Acadian comedy-musical group, established in Moncton, NB in 2010, is known for their groovy, funky, psychedelic rock sound. Their lyrics are self-effacing and straight to the point: “I think it’s safe to say, we’re gonna have some fun today,” begins “Safe to Say”. This is a band that above all wants to show you a good time and have fun doing it.
The band was active from 2012 to 2020, touring everywhere from l’Acadie to Jamaica, but took a hiatus for the pandemic. Now they’re back and ready to roll! Their latest album Pas l'temps d'niaiser is true to the Hôtesses d'Hilaire’s universe, yet it is a little softer and more melodic than the previous albums. This album is all about experimenting with vocal harmonies and giving space to instrumental songs.
Les Hôtesses d’Hilaire is made up of Mico Roy (guitar), Rémi Arsenault (bass), Maxence Cormier (drums), and Léandre Bourgeois (synths). Together they form an unstoppable comedic and musical force that will have you dancing, laughing, or both at the same time.
