About
I am a French jazz singer/bassist. I play/sing many French songs as well as American jazz standards and Brazilian bossa novas. My group, depending on the venue and the wishes of the client, ranges from a duo to a quartet or quintet. We play clubs dates, private parties, corporate events, weddings and festivals.
The group lends itself to a mellow, quieting and relaxing atmosphere, performing jazz standards with French and Brazilian overtones.
We have played in the Chicago area for the past 25 years and wish to expand our field of activities. I am now living in New Orleans where my French and Jazz roots blend with the culture of the city.
I am extremely dependable and believe in absolute professionalism: punctuality, stage presence as well as "feeling" the audience, as I am aware that the band is often a background sound tapestry for your event. I will abide by your song wish list and play/sing all songs that you have in mind.
Making you affair a success is my goal

Cecile Savage and her musicians were OUTSTANDING! The sound was terrific (she has a beautiful voice), the musicians were top notch and everyone LOVED them. They made our evening simply perfect. They were professional and really talented. I would hire Cecile Savage again for future events and absolutely recommend her. Thank you Cecile!

Cecile Savage Quartet played at our wedding reception and they were excellent! All of our guests really enjoyed their music and had nothing but great things to say about the band and their music. They are incredibly talented, professional, and genuinely wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend Cecile Savage Quartet to our friends, family, or anyone planning an event/wedding. Thank you again to Cecile and her band for making our wedding reception memorable!

The library could not have made a better choice for our fundraiser! Having Cecile and Koko perform at our Spring Arts Festival was perfect...they provided great atmosphere for our French themed event. Cecile was very willing to work with the library on our budget, and they graciously traveled to our far south suburb. They arrived well before our event and played until the last guest had gone. We made an excellent choice, and I will certainlyh be recommending Cecile Savage to all of my fellow programming librarians.

Cecile Savage’s Response:

I do not quite agree with this version of our performance. We were playing a party for the mother of the client (Nichole), in her mother and father's home. Her father offered us a drink, which we accepted. As the music was very well received, the mother (the birthday person) invited us to have some food. 2 out of 3 musicians had some appetizers, and only one had one crepe, at the end of the evening, crepe offered by one of the guests. Throughout the evening, I checked with Ms. Nichole, to ask if everything was all right. She said it was fine.She even gave us a tip! We played every requests, we had them dance. I am sorry that this misunderstanding was not addressed
