Christophe Dupin

Christophe Dupin is born on September 30th, 1970 to Berck-sur-Mer (France) then leaves for Switzerland at the age of 3. Plunged from his youngest age in the musical environment (his father, Roland, is worldwide known as the "Stradivarius" of the oboe) Christophe joins from 1978 the Conservatoire of Zürich where he begins, naturally, to study the oboe.
If, in the paternal workshop, resound the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Cimarosa… on the record player of the young kid, it is Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holy and many other big names of the rock 'n' roll that turn in loop.
In 1982, Christophe has the chance to meet the singer and the guitarist of the group The Steps (Swiss rock and blues band) what decides on him to study the guitar beside Peter Kane. A few months later, he creates the group of rock 'n' roll The Billys with which he spreads out the Swiss and German stages during more than four years, before entering studio to record "Dis-le moi" which will be broadcasted on Zurich radios. Their first concert will be in first part of Cincinnati Bomber's. After one of his performances, Christophe is approached to become the singer's of the group The Rhytm n’ Cadillac. Proposition he declines to stay with his friends from the very beginning.
During the 90’s, Christophe played with several French bands with which he gave several concerts in France and in Greece.
In 2003, he creates and develops the concept of the "Berdorf’s Musical Evenings" (grand duchy of Luxembourg), of which he is the artistic director. During a concert given in homage to Mozart - of whom Christophe considers that it was the first rock’n’roller  - Christophe makes his return improvised on stage surrounded with classic musicians who abandoned their instruments for a drum kit and a piano boogie. In front of the gained success, he decides to recover in the composition (and, in the same time, becomes member of Sacem Luxembourg).
Christophe made his official come-back on stage on August 16th, 2007 during a big rock 'n' roll and rockabilly concert given in homage to Elvis Presley, beside the French group of rock 'n' roll Les Forbans and of the German group of rockabilly The Hackensacks.
Author, composer, interpreter and multi-musician instrumentalist (guitar, bass, saxophone) Christophe Dupin is proud to present you "Rock'n'Roll Tonight", his first 6 titles EP today and is impatient to meet his public on the roads of Europe (Luxembourg, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy…) and moreover (Quebec, the USA, Japan…).
