DAVE CHAPPELLE has become one of the most distinctive voices in comedy with his laser-precise views on race, class and popular culture. His rocket to international stardom came in 2003 with the groundbreaking “Chappelle’s Show,” a half-hour blend of sketch, stand-up and musical guests. Chappelle has also appeared in films such as “Half Baked,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Con Air,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Blue Streak,” as well as on over 40 national television shows including numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Politically Incorrect.” He starred in his own one-hour HBO special and also in “Dave Chappelle’s Block Party,” a concert documentary directed by dreamy surrealist Michel Gondry.

FREDERIC YONNET’s impressive style has led to performances, tours and recordings with some of the heaviest hitters in the business including the legendary Stevie Wonder, music icon Prince, award-winning songwriter David Foster, game-changing instrumentalist Kenny G, American Idol’s Randy Jackson, and R&B artistsErykah Badu, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, India.Arie, Anthony Hamilton, and John Legend. Rolling Stone magazine referred to Yonnet as “Prince’s killer harmonica player” and praise from comedian Dave Chappelle, contemporary jazzman Bob James, songstress Patti Austin and producerPharrell Williams have affirmed his mission to change the way the music industry, musicians and enthusiasts regard the pocketsize reed instrument.

Born in Normandy, France, to a Parisian father and French Guyanese Creole mother, Yonnet lived in and around Paris most of his life. As a child, he and his dad performed comedy in theaters throughout France. By 14, he decided to literally march to the beat of his own drum. After a short stint as a drummer, Yonnet revisited an instrument he’d received as a child: the harmonica. “I got kicked out of bands because I kept trying to play the melody on the drums,” said Yonnet. “On the harmonica I can play both the melody and the rhythm. Plus they’re lighter to carry.”
