I hired La Vie en Rose Band for my 44th wedding anniversary yesterday and boy was I right. It is an exceptional group of pure professionals, classic, exquisite, very rich "repertoire" and super charming. All my guests were delighted!!! We definitely will have an encore!!! Merci La Vie en Rose!

Response from La Vie En Rose:
Oh un grand merci Victor! It was so much fun! A tres bientot!
I cannot express how amazing Violette and the pianist were in making my wedding everything I could have hoped for. From beginning to end, Violette was so easy to work with, very responsive, and her renditions of all the songs we asked her to sing during the ceremony were truly amazing, classy, and unique. Everyone commented how upbeat, classy, yet fun her song choices were for cocktail hour as well. I highly recommend Violette/La Vie en Rose to anyone.
La Vie En Rose exceeded our expectations and the musicians were a pleasure to work with. Their music was great and they are polished and professional in every way!
Every part of our wedding was made that much more special because of the bands we booked with La Vie en Rose. From the singing harpist to the jazz band and to the 8-piece band - all did such a fantastic job and our guests were raving about them for days to come.
Couldn't have booked a better group of people :)
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thanks so much for your kind words Megan!
All the best to you and Ethan!
Pia came to perform for us at our charity event last night. She wowed the audience!!! Pia was professional, on time and was so wonderful to work with. Her talent is truly remarkable, her voice fulled the room she made our event come to life! Do not hesitate to book her she was so fantastic, our guests were talking about it all last night & this morning! Her voice was so beautiful & the range of music she played was perfect. We love her & would definitely recommend booking her! #amazing
Perfect band, fantastic night. Could not have been more professional.
Perfect. The were absolutely perfect whether playing processional wedding music, French jazz, or rock. My guests were in awe as was I. So incredibly nice as well. Loved everything about them from the contract to the last dance.
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thank you so much Deborah, we hope to cross paths again soon!
We booked Dallas Vietty, the accordion player, to play the music at our wedding ceremony. Dallas did a wonderful job, playing every song beautifully, and even learned an obscure waltz for our recessional. He was an absolute joy at the wedding and I cannot recommend him enough.
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thanks a lot Lorraine!
so glad you enjoyed Dallas' wonderful music!
All the best to you two!
Violette and La Vie En Rose made my mom's 84th birthday celebration enchanting. The choice of music was excellent, Violette's voice was superb and her pianist was amazingly talented. Mom was yelling BRAVO after each song. I can't wait to see them again.
Rose en Vie provided a wonderful cabaret-style living room concert following a nice dinner party for 28 friends. Beautiful French songs shared with us by a sweet, passionate voice, warm personality, and friendly charm. After the concert, our women guests at he party all wanted another trip to France, and the men wanted a French girlfriend. Violette and her piano accompanist, Yoonah, make a perfect, professional pair. I would love to have them again!!!
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thank you so much Robert. A bientot!
Fantastic band. Can't say enough about them...other then will hire for next event as well.
I've used Violette and the performers from La Vie En Rose a number of times now, both for my wedding and my company's holiday party. We simply can't get enough of them. Highly recommended because of their extreme professionalism and low maintenance demeanor.
And then there's the sound. When they play and she sings, you realize that this is what has been missing in your life. Their sound is luxurious and intoxicating even when there's only two of them.
Final note: She was able to work within my different budgets and put together an ensemble that was perfect for each occasion.
I'm so happy I met them and will definitely use them again.
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thank you Moki - so humbled by your kind words!
La Vie en Rose Band was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I were completely satisfied as well as my guest. The band's performance was extremely smooth and added that extra savoir faire to my wedding.
Response from La Vie En Rose:
Thank you Sibyl! A bientot!!
We arranged for a jazz trio at our corporate event last night, and everything was outstanding. Violette made the coordination process incredibly easy, and we were very happy with Tomoko, So Young, and Julian. They were professional, courteous, played well, and looked great together. Would highly recommend La Vie En Rose!
Violette and La Vie En Rose were tremendous - providing piano music during cocktails, a jazz trio during dinner, and a full vocal/band for dancing the rest of the evening. Everything about them was top-notch and elegant, and our guests really enjoyed the music. Violet was always both professional and friendly, and a pleasure to work with. She easily learned a special request for our first dance. We couldn't be happier with La Vie En Rose!
La Vie en Rose is a dream come true! We wanted romantic elegance for our wedding, and they made it happen! Violette was a pleasure to work with and was quick to respond to any inquiries we had during the planning process, and the band was out of this world amazing! Our singer, Mari Rosa, is stunningly beautiful with a voice to match and she and the rest of the band created a musical fairy tale for our wedding. They played beautiful French music, classic ballads, and some contemporary pop music. Their range of genres and talent is unbelievable! Everyone was having such a fabulous time dancing, and our guests of all ages told us how wonderful the music was all night long. We didn't talk to a single guest who didn't comment on how beautiful and perfect the music was, and the band kept everyone captivated all night long! They are a group of highly skilled musicians who know how to play to a crowd. We are still in awe of the magic they created, and we are so grateful we hired them for the most amazing day of our lives! My 89 year old grandmother said, "They don't make bands like this anymore!" Thank you so much La Vie en Rose. You made our wedding dreams come true!
Mari and fellow musicians were entertaining and seemed to understand what we were trying to accomplish at our event.
Everyone was thoroughly entertained. We found them to put they finishing touches on our Evening in Paris Event.
WE LOVED THEM!
Dear Violette and La Vie En Rose,
My husband Nick and I celebrated our wedding at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, and Arboretum in Bristol, RI on June 1st, 2014. All we can say is WOW! You made our wedding day absolutely perfect. From the beautiful solo violin during the ceremony, to the 3 piece quartet during cocktail hour, and the wonderful sounds of the band and your beautiful voice throughout our reception-it was perfection. We want to thank you so much, we could not have been happier. You truly made our day.
Our guests were blown away by your performance and were impressed at how talented you all were. Violette, coordinating the day with you was so effortless. Throughout all our correspondence you were professional, flexible, and timely. I truly appreciate you tailoring our day to us and incorporating all of our requests and my mother was so excited to hear Clair de Lune during reception introductions.
It was a true pleasure to have you all share our day with us. Thank you!
Leanne and Nick Szwaja
Since our first dealings with Violette, we have found La Vie en Rose to be incredibly accomodating and Professional. Yesterday was my daughter's wedding. We had booked Violette and three musician's. They were there early to set up. Violette has a beautiful voice. The musicians she chose were very talented and complemented her voice wonderfully. She performed our chosen songs well and her own choices were terrific. They struck just the right note of sophisticated yet heartfelt playing my daughter had imagined. They were appreciated by all age groups and we received many compliments. Can't say enough good things!!!
We engaged Roberto, the accordionist for La Vie en Rose Band. We were celebrating a graduation in a private room at a North End Restaurant. Not only was the atmosphere perfect, but Roberto was delightful! He even learned a special family song, just for our event. Bravo Roberto and La Vie en Rose Band. Thank you. Would book again!
We eloped to Paris so were thrilled to have Violette bring Paris to us and our guests when we had the reception in Tucson. She worked with our requests and knew exactly how to play our special dance music. Violette was very professional and so easy to work with we never doubted that everyone would enjoy them. A number of our guests commented that she and Manami provided the best atmosphere of any reception they had been to. Though we were a bit unorganized, Violette arrived with everything needed and we didn't have a worry. I am busily working to engage them for another event in Alaska.
Book these guys! Singer is great! The band is very tight and the song selection is fantastic.
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.
La Vie En Rose totally made our wedding the most elegant and fun one I have attended! We had first seen them perform at a friends backyard party and totally loved their sound and overall style.
Violette made the planning really easy, giving us great advice while listening to our vision and ideas. We finally booked a package including solo piano for ceremony, instrumental quartet for cocktail hour (outdoors) and six musicians for the dinner. Great mix of romantic vintage and upbeat songs... and I absolutely loved the French (Edith Piaf) songs. All our friends asked us how we had found the band: we were thrilled! Thanks La Vie En Rose!
Wonderful! La Vie En Rose is all at once fun, upbeat and romantic. They kept our friends dancing all night to Jazz, French and R&B music. Great versatile musicians and SO easy to work with.
La Vie En Rose was recommended to me by a friend who had them perform at their anniversary party. We wanted some fun, elegant French & American music. La Vie En Rose was the perfect fit!
The planning was very easy, Violette advised us with a Live Band + DJ package which was perfect from Ceremony music to Dancing. They played our requests on short notice and it sounded amazing <3
I am totally booking them again for my next party!
We requested a violinist and a cellist for a corporate event. They were very talented, easy to work with, and professional. The crowd was very pleased with their performance.
La Vie En Rose is such a talented team of musicians. Everyone marveled at how wonderful the music was at our fundraiser. They were so good, it made the night go by too fast!! Until next time.... there will be a next time!
So elegant and entertaining, loved the unique blend of French songs with Jazz! The whole band was extremely professional, punctual and
A thoughtful mixture of musical genres from french songs to swing and Jazz. Young and energetic the players have a good flair of the taste of the public; and their musical response to the public's expectation is on target. Violette Bartillat traite son public avec respect et une touche exquise de courtoisie. La vie en rose:c'est cool, breezy . It is feisty!
La Vie En Rose was great from the very start til the end of our special day. They helped us put together the best combo/package for our French themed wedding. My husband being American we were so happy to find a group that could really embrace both cultures! Their repertoire was so versatile! We had violin and cello for the ceremony: simply amazing then the 5 piece band for cocktail hour and dinner was just the right amount of class and fun. Would highly recommend, could not be happier!
