Triple ARIA Award winning group Monsieur Camembert has been at the forefront of Australias GYPROCK scene for the past 8 years "...a gloriously good humoured & eclectic collection of genres colliding...its all carnival sounds & folk parody but played with undeniable ebullient gusto & enthusiasm. Musically as diverse as the ethnic mix in the line-up itself, & delivered with all the virtuosity, bravado & wit you'd expect from this superbly cerebral yet viscerally driven ensemble" (Drum Media)

...a brazen and intoxicating blend of jazz, gypsy swing, Latin & East European influences! (The Age, 2005)

If I had to summarise the immense appeal of this group, it is their subtle quirkiness and sense of surprise they engender...you could groove to them all night... (Diaspora Magazine)

Gloriously melodramatic, extraordinary musical prowess [and] breathless panache… ensemble playing at it’s finest... (Drum Media Magazine)

…a winning tongue-in-cheek insouciance that is instantly intoxicating and highly infectious (The Adelaide Review)
