Hire Jazz Bands
La Vie En Rose was fantastic! We hired them for our wedding and they did not disappoint. We were looking for something a little different than your average wedding band singing typical or cliche wedding songs. The french jazz was perfect for our first few hours of our cocktail hour. Classy and sexy without being too loud! Per Violette’s recommendation we included a male vocalist who joined the ensemble later in the evening to provide some great Motown/funk dance music. Although we had not heard him prior to the event, it turned out great. People were dancing and having a ball. Many guests commented on how much they enjoyed the band! Would certainly recommend!

Violette & La Vie En Rose were amazing to work with. From planning the event to the day of it was so smooth. Obviously, Violette has this silky smooth amazing voice..but she’s also so responsive and happy to help in any way. They learned new songs for our ceremony at a great value and made the vibe of my wedding so amazing. They provided extra speakers, microphones, etc...everything we needed to make our wedding extraordinary. Perfect jazz band!!

Dear LVER / Violette,

Thank you for your lovely music companion on our day!

We recorded few clips of you playing and will upload them on Instagram ( will # La Vie En Rose ) or YouTube. More people can see how wonderful it can be to have you and your music there on their important events!!!

Thank you again!

La Vie En Rose played for our conference farewell dinner, and the attendees loved it. Several people asked who they were and where we got them. Their music made the perfect relaxing atmosphere and added to the elegance of the venue. Violette has wonderful vocal talent and paired with the band, the sound was beautiful. They were also very kind to lend us a microphone when we realized there was a mix up with our a/v staff. We had a fantastic experience and would love to have them back sometime.

We wanted to thank you for a wonderful performance at the Harvard club.
Ms.Liz has given us such wonderful company and my family enjoyed the whole time with her.
The bride loved her songs and she especially enjoyed listening to “can’t help falling in love”.
I personally loved all of her songs, especially “somewhere over the rainbow”, because that was my wedding song when I walked with my father on the aisle/virgin road.
Thank you very much again!!

Book this band!!! They were amazing! They took the time and learned some pretty difficult songs for our wedding on a short notice. These guys have their stuff together. Sounded great live and they have a ton of talent!

La Vie en Rose played beautiful, classy music throughout our wedding. Everyone remarked on how talented they all were and their mix of jazz and french songs was perfect for our event. It rained our whole wedding and they cheered everyone up instantly and set the tone and mood for the evening. They also provided us with Franklyn Rosario for the DJ equipment for our friend to use, and he was super helpful, friendly, and useful with introductions and announcements. Would highly recommend booking this package. It was excellent value for money and everything we hoped for.

Best Memory: Dancing with my sister, husband and brother in law to All About That Bass for your final song, which you played an extended version of for us! Will always treasure that memory. So much fun and such a hilarious and beautiful memory.

We hired Violette and her band to perform at our wedding a few weeks ago, and they were wonderful! It was a pleasure to work with them - they were very accomodating to all of our requests, and Violette was always very responsive by both email and phone. The guests at our wedding loved the music as well. Our guests started dancing during the first course - everyone from our flower girls, friends in their early 20s, to our friends in the 40s and 50s. The music was amazing, and Violette was great at emcee’ing as well. After ~3 hours of the band, we transitioned to the DJ on Violette’s team, and he was also great. We highly recommend La Vie en Rose!

Violette and the band were absolutely incredible and were beyond our expectations. The songs they learned for the event were even better then the radio originals. :D An absolute professional and flawless execution. EVERYONE loved them! -

We had a wedding back in July 2013. La Vie En Rose Band really made our wedding amazing. All our guests commented on how great the music was. They provided a range of elegant music during the reception and a variety of more upbeat music as the evening progressed. Violette was very professional and receptive to all our needs. It was a pleasure to work with her. If you like french jazz, don’t look any further.

Violette was wonderful to work with start to finish and has a lovely voice. We did a home wedding with ceremony in the great room and party right outside on the patio. Doing most of the prep work ourselves, we didn’t really have the time to do much planning with her, but she demonstrated remarkable flexibility in getting us what we wanted as our needs changed. She was able to pull in a violinist with <24 hours notice to accompany the piano for the ceremony, and the two played together flawlessly. The band transitioned to jazz on the patio immediately. Several friends have offered to pitch in to bring La Vie en Rose back for a patio party next year.

La Vie En Rose exceeded our expectations. I had reviewed several bands for our annual fundraiser, and I was able to convince a committee of over 12 people that La Vie En Rose was the band for our Speakeasy 1920’s themed fundraiser. Prior to our event, Violette, the band leader communicated well with me and even made phone calls. I had never worked with them before and I was so impressed with their professionalism and how true to form their videos were. We had 5 pieces of the band and they looked the part, sounded even better and were the “wow factor” we needed. As an event planner of over 10years in the industry, I would highly reccomend them.

We LOVE La Vie En Rose Band! Several wedding guests specifically commented on what a great band they were. The music was beautiful and flawless, and the atmosphere they created was perfect for our venue and style. Violette was extremely easy to work with, prompt in her responses and correspondence, and a delightful person and musician all around. She made suggestions for our first dance song, which we loved, & was very accommodating when we wanted them to play a shorter version of it. I am a very detail-oriented planner, and I felt completely at ease working with La Vie En Rose Band through the entire wedding planning process. They did not disappoint at all.

We hired La Vie En Rose to perform at a university dinner themed after Paris, France. Violette projects respect for her formal training while charming with her lovely vocal tone in singing everything from French mid-century 20th century classics to jazz-rooted crowd pleasing tunes. Her accompanying musicians worked well together. One can tell when performers are “going through the motions”. The performers that comprise La Vie En Rose go far beyond doing so. They enjoy playing together and it shows. I am sure La Vie En Rose is able to create a wonderful sonic aura for any occasion. Every member of the group is professional, multi-talented and caring. Very pleased!

A terrific wedding performance.
Clever, elegant and extraordinarily fun.
— -Natasha B, Bretton Woods, NH
Perfection! My guest couldn’t stop talking about them. I highly recommend them.
— Denise B, New York City, NY
Very accommodating and did a great job of composing a few of our favorite pop songs. Woks definitely recommend them as they were able to operate with minimal guidance and delivered a great performance nonetheless.
— Cuneyt U, New York, NY
Band was prompt and self-sufficient. More than just playing the notes on the page, they played the soul of the music. They were very accommodating, playing a couple songs, then breaking for speeches/toasts, playing a few more, breaking for cutting of the cake, etc. Seemed like they had a great sense of the flow of our reception. Would certainly recommend to a friend; looking forward to rebooking them.
— Corey L, New York, NY
I was trying to get a jazz band , preferably with a French speaking vocalist for my party. Fortunately I found this site who sent my bid to various artists, I received quite a variation in prices however after I listened to Violette’s voice and read previous reviews I decided to hire La Vie En Rose. The band arrived in time, looking so chic ( all of them), beautiful voice and intrepretation. All my guests commented positively and admiringly. Violette is an apparition herself , not only a great voice: -) In the end I congratulated myself for the choice I made.
— Dana E, Beverly, MA
I was very impress with there talent,they were so amazing, Violette voice is unbelievable. They made our event a hundred times better.I hope in the near future we will have them entertain us again. At the end of our fundraiser our guests could not stop talking how great La Vie en Rose was. The last thing I like to say THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH,yours truly.
— Bill C, Paramus, NJ
La Vie En Rose Band was just simply perfect and great for our corporate event. They were completely professional and provided such great entertainment for our guests. I definitely recommend them for any occasion.
— Priva Jin - New Jersey Institute of Technology
La Vie en Rose worked with me to find a combination from their entire band that would fit my budget. The musicians were excellent. They showed up timely, set up quickly, and looked great. They played a great selection of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, and other music from that era, for my dad’s 90th birthday. Their music had my aunts and uncles dancing, even though we hadn’t specifically planned for that - it was just so good that Aunt Pat couldn’t resist! Everybody present, including the younger generation, enjoyed the performance. I’d happily recommend them to anyone in the area. -
