We hired The Fixtures Duo to play at our wedding reception. Fabienne is simply gorgeous and these 2 musicians have a nice sultry, jazz modern style together. They both set the mood for a lovely reception, I only wish I hired them longer. They made our evening feel cool and hip & beyond our expectations. Thank you both for a special evening my husband and I will never forget! We love you both, The Newlyweds

After meeting on a joint musical project Fabienne Grisel (Vocals) and Ido Sasson (Guitar) realized they share a love for similar music and decided to form The Fixtures Duo.
Fabienne grew up in Europe and was introduced to jazz and blues by her father, a trumpet player. Being surrounded by music early on, she started singing at the young age of 7. She then moved to Los Angeles and studied Vocals and Songwriting at Musicians Institute. After exploring different genres of music (pop, rock, classical, jazz, blues) and playing in various bands, she released a solo record in 2015 for which she won an award from Songnet (The Independent Songwriter's Network). She has studied classical vocal technique and pedagogy for the past 19 years. In 2017, Fabienne was chosen amongst 250 vocalists to front the popular LA rock band Neverwonder.
Ido is a session guitarist and producer originally from Israel with over 15 years of professional experience in both recording and live performance. After completing his degree from Musicians Institute, he toured Europe in conjunction with Redbull and has performed live on TV shows including the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and The CBS Morning Show. He has also worked in the studio with many artists such as Sarah Bettens of K's Choice and Adam Cohen (Leonard Cohen's son).
Now, these two accomplished musicians have formed The Fixtures Duo and are ready to play for you!!
