Dimitri from Paris was back in to Toronto for the Canadian Music fest this weekend and he rocked the disco at the Roosevelt Room. Decked in a tuxedo and oozing frenchness, Dimitri rolled out the good times with a Studio 54 vibe, extended versions of classics (from Ain't No Mountain to I Can't Go For That) and samples from his previous compilations.
And the man is charming in a goofy way and interacted with the crowd all night long. His set was accompanied by a live bongo player and French cabaret girls posing by the DJ booth. Were they part of the performance? Not sure, but it all worked. The crowd started out a little too “beautiful people”, but as the night went on only the ones who came to get down remained. Parfait!
