You have managed to combine the French and American culture...

Everyone loved the sound ...

"Your band at the Piermont FlyWheel Gallery was a big hit. Everyone loved the sound and you gave my art show the kind of ambiance that I was looking for…. elegant and fun and kept the place at a lively pace. I received lots of terrific comments regarding the music and lots of interest in having you play. Best wishes, Rachele"

What wonderful talent and ability your group showed...

"Yvonnick, I do not have the words to express how fulfilled I felt last night at my party at Daniel with your music. What wonderful talent and ability your group showed, to complete such an ambience with such amazing melody. I have received tons of compliments about the music – thanks to you.
