topette  New Anglo-French acoustic dance band Topette!! is a collective of uninhibited musical adventurers playing self-penned and traditional music from anywhere with a winning mix of bonhomie and grit.

Of course it helps that those musicians are some of the finest on the Anglo-French dance scene…Andy Cutting (diatonic button accordion)…James Delarre (violin)…Julien Cartonnet (bagpipes, banjo)…Tania Buisse (bodhrán)…Barnaby Stradling (acoustic bass guitar)​.

Born out of friendship, the five-piece play naturally social music – for filling dancefloors, for listening, for drinking with friends – but don’t expect it to merge into the background. This is raunchy, up-all-night, joyously jugular-grabbing dance music.
