The roaring 20s are here again with the razzle-dazzle of the French Horn Collective. Led by Parisian native Vincent Raffard, the group delivers a spectacular concoction of old school Paris jazz and original music mixed with influences from New Orleans, Gypsy jazz, and a dash of Miami, of course.
The French Horn Collective is an ensemble led by Vincent Raffard on the Trumpet, Guitar and
French Vocals, joined by other amazing musicians and talented vocalists.
Vincent Raffard is a French singer-songwriter whose music can’t be categorized into just one stylistic genre. Lyrics play an integral role in his music and in communicating with his audience.
Raffard was very dynamic in the French music scene. He’s played prestigious stages such as l’Olympia in Paris and released his first album in 2006, Clestin. Right after making the decision to move to South Florida in 2007, Raffard released his first opus: Vincent Raffard EP & 2010. In 2012 Vincent formed The French Horn Collective, whose sounds and tones are unique and transcend genre.
Vincent and the band are very prolific with many albums to their credit:
The French Horn, Transit Time & 2014
The French Horn Collective, Hot Club of Miami & 2015
The French Horn Collective, Story d’Amour & 2018
