Jon Batiste

Lake Geneva will have a bayou feel on 5 July! New Orleans showman Jon Batiste will be taking over the Lake Stage for its grand opening night. Last summer, he ended his concert in the street with his flamboyant marching band. A moment of anthology that turned into a real trance: the audience kept singing the same melody for almost an hour. In recent years, Jon Batiste’s name has taken on a crazy dimension. A breathtaking musician who was already well known to jazz and soul fans, he is now one of the most essential artists on the planet. Jon Batiste has won it all: an Oscar for the soundtrack to the Pixar film Soul and 5 Grammy Awards for the album We Are, including the most prestigious award for Best Album of the Year. An impressive synthesis of jazz, R&B, pop and soul, this album has enabled him to reach a wide audience. A few months after his epic concert at Coachella, his appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival will be his only European date this summer.
