About
It would be my pleasure to provide professional, friendly, and deliciously musical performance to your event. I am a versatile singer and multi-instrumentalist, accompanying my voice on jazz guitar, ukulele, and (for originals), the piano.

I have toured nationally and internationally, performing original music as well as jazz standards, French chanson and traditional North American folk music. I am equally comfortable performing solo, as part of a group, or leading a small ensemble.

My specialties are:
* French bistro / cafe jazz
* Jazz standards and romantic music
* Jazzified pop songs of all eras...

My voice has been compared to:
* Edith Piaf
* Joni Mitchell
* Billie Holiday

I'm happy to work to your vision of the desired atmosphere, sound/volume requirements, and your entertainment budget. For example, I can perform solo, or arrange for a tasty duo (myself, upright bass or soloist), trio (myself, upright bass, and solosit) or full ensemble (myself, bass, drums & solo guitarist/violinist/accordionist/saxophonist). You can be sure the music and performance you get when you hire me will respond to the atmosphere, the audience, the space and circumstances with the positivity, adaptability, professionality and creativity your event deserves.

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or to make special repertoire requests.

I look forward to working with you!

PLEASE NOTE: I am based in Berkeley, California but I travel to Montreal, BC, the east coast and the pacific northwest frequently. Don't hesitate to contact me if your event is not in the SF Bay Area!

It was a pleasure to work with Madeline to plan a surprise party for my wife's birthday with a French theme. I was working in Europe at the time and she easily adapted our communication accordingly and seamlessly. I had many compliments on the atmosphere she brought to the event. I was very pleased with my "rare find".

I would give Madeline 10 stars if I could. She was an absolute delight, from our first pre-event "strategy" phone call to the end of the event. She learned a new song for my wedding that was particularly special to the groom and me, and wowed us all not only with her melodious voice but her warmth and charm. She played a few extra songs at the family's insistence, and we were all sad to see her leave after the event. Book her - you will not regret it. We will never forget her beautiful and meaningful performance.

Madeline couldn't have been a more perfect fit for the feel and scene we were going for, making the day less of a overly serious formal event and more a hanging out of friends and family on a special day. She overcame any challenge thrown her way with grace and professionalism, all the while letting her creative indie musician goddess self shine through incandescantly. Thanks, Maddy!

Madeline was amazing the 425 guests at our event loved her. She was friendly and open to whatever we asked her to do. We hosted a Parisian event this year and she completed the ambience. I would love to have her again.

Madeline performed at my wedding and was wonderful to work with! She has a beautiful voice and everyone loved her performance! I wanted live music for our first dance, the father-daughter dance and the mother-son dance and she worked with me to find the perfect song selections. She is a lovely person and I highly recommend her for any event!

What a wonderful talent Madeline is!!! I contracted to have Madeline play a retirement party, and boy was it worth it. She played the piano, guitar and ukelele with a fabulous voice and lyrics. From pop to folk, and even her own music, it all sounds wonderful and the guests were thrilled with the entertainment. Easy to deal with from contracting to set-up and tear-down, I would highly recommend Madeline for your next event. 'Til we meet again! Thank you for making the event and evening so special!

Madeline is a sweetheart. She performed at my husbands 50th birthday party. She was so accommodating to what I wanted. During the party she was friendly and interacted with people through her singing and her friendly personality. I wish I could have had her perform for longer but am glad we got it going. Thank you Madeline. So appreciate you making this happen for Ron and me.

Madeline Tasquin's performance was superb, excellent, wonderful! Madeline introduced each number with an entertaining anecdote and sang songs in french and in english. All of our guests gushed about Madeline's performance. One commented that while listening to her music, he had the sensation that he was 'in love' with the world. Merci beaucoup.

Maddie helped me make my engagement plans so insanely special. I had a romantic surprise plan to propose to my girlfriend, and she was so enthused about it from the get go. Plus she's super talented and her work is amazing so it was a natural fit. She was amazing to work with on the overall plan. Learned the song that I asked her to that was so near and dear to us - and was super communicative throughout the whole process. She not only killed it with the music, bu added a personal touch that really made working with her special. We'll never forget her and she won't let you down :)
