The foundations of French band Jack Dupon go back to 2001, but it wasn’t until 2006 that the group surfaced with their first release, L’Africain Disparu. Since then they have developed a reputation for exceptional live shows (“Best Band,” Brugheas festival, 2007; 4th Prize out of 1800 entrants and “Best Bassist,” Bilborock festival, Spain, 2007) and released eclectic, creative and acclaimed albums: L’Echelle du Désir in 2008, and Démon Hardï in 2011. Bascule á Vif is a recent two-disc set capturing the energy of Jack Dupon live.
The line-up includes Arnaud M’Doihoma on bass, Thomas Larsen on drums and percussion, Gregory Pozzoli on guitar and vocals, and Philippe Prebet on guitars and vocals.
Chapel Hill is in the Triangle metropolitan area of North Carolina, which includes major cities like Durham and Raleigh.
