About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Frances Livings' Ipanema Lounge offers a unique, interesting and international jazz repertoire – whether as a duo, trio or even sextet – fronted by the multi-lingual singer Frances Livings. Frances' songs are interesting, sensual and enticing – a blend of Mediterranean Pop and Latin jazz in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese driven by creative and infectious grooves. The ensemble always features an eclectic mix of some of the best jazz musicians from L.A. and their music performances express a rich atmosphere of cultural diversity – loved by both jazz enthusiasts and those who never considered themselves jazz fans! Frances sings the beautiful Bossa Nova songbook: Many compositions by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim - as well as popular chansons in French, jazz in Spanish and Portuguese. Their repertoire ranges from soft ballads to high energy Bossa Nova and world jazz songs. Whether as a duo or quintet, they bring out the colours of these meanwhile classical tunes of the 1940's and 60's by arranging them in a contemporary Latin-jazz style. Never losing touch with the intentions of the original tune, their sophisticated interpretation of standards like 'Corcovado' or 'The Girl From Ipanema' (being some of the most well known songs), perfectly capture the mood of the time, infused with an easy-going, contemplative and seductive Lounge-jazz feeling. This music is so rich in options, in sound and performance, that this ensemble is ideal for any concert setting: Depending on your venue and event, YOU decide on the number of musicians you would like to book. Frances Livings Ipanema Lounge can be booked as: – a duo (voice and guitar) for smaller intimate settings - also if you are working with a limited budget – a trio (voice, guitar or piano and bass) for medium sized venues – a five piece ensemble (voice, guitar, bass, percussion, saxophone or piano) plus other musicians/instruments, like bandoneon "The Ipanema Lounge project gives you the sweet sounds of Brazilian music that are sure to please." ~ Paul Anderson, KJAZZ 91.5

Frances Livings' Ipanema Lounge was absolutely amazing. They truly made my event memorable. I cannot give Frances and her band enough compliments on their talent and professionalism. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in having a live band at their event.

Private PartyReviewed on June 22, 2019From Hollywood, CA

Frances put together a lovely show for my small reception event. Her voice is lovely and her smooth sound and latin beats were exactly what I was looking for. She was easy to deal with and everything went off without a hitch,
