About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Marlene Jazz Ensemble will add that special "wow" to your event with unique and stylish jazz, be it a wedding, corporate function, holiday, or any kind of private party. We're versatile with our band size and instrumentation--available from solo, duo, trio to larger ensembles. Marlene is a pianist and vocalist and her ensemble performs a vocal and instrumental repertoire covering jazz, bossanova, rhythm and blues and originals, from Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra to Jobim, Sting and Aretha Franklin and of course, holiday music for the holidays! You can check out Marlene’s CDs on Spotify: Our instrumentation is varied. Most often, our clients choose a trio of piano/vocals, bass and either sax, guitar or drums, but we work with other instruments as well. And of course, we pride ourselves on our professionalism, which is why we have collected quite an impressive list of esteemed clients over the years (see below). *********************************************************************************************************************************** Ms. del Rosario draws you in with an uncanny grasp of the jazz, blues and soul idioms...Like Bill Evans and Miles Davis, the silences between the notes are always as emotionally telling as the words themselves." -UK jazz critic, John Stevenson (E-Jazz news) Marlene has performed for international and national audiences, in private functions for former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick, Mayor Menino and MA senators. She has also performed for Philippine ex-presidents Cory Aquino and Fidel Ramos and Thailand's Princess Chulabhorn. She performs in solo and ensemble settings. Her ensemble performs regularly for special events in New England’s top hotels, including Boston Harbor Hotel’s holiday events and the 2022 and 2023 Boston Wine and Food festivals, The Chanler at Cliffwalk, Fairmont Copley’s exclusive Bacchanale dinner and wine series, and New Year’s Eve galas at Chatham Bars Inn. Other performances include concerts at The Street, Chestnut Hill summer series, Boston Seaport summer series, 2017 Arlington Jazz Festival, 2008 Philippine International festival, Boston Arts Festivals, Acton Jazz Café, Beehive, Ryles Club for the UN-sponsored benefit to remove landmines in Mozambique, Worcester First Night and multiple appearances on local tv. She is also part of a new endeavor, The Brazilian Project, where she sings Brazilian tunes in both Portuguese and English.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 2, 2022From Cambridge, MA

If your looking for a talented, reliable, professional and personable jazz artist / singer to complement your wedding and/or wedding reception, look no further than Marlene and her ensemble. I live in Texas and got super lucky when I found and hired Marlene Jazz Ensemble to play at my wedding reception atop the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge. Over the weeks leading up to the event on April 2,2022, Marlene "teamed" with me on planning the music to create the right mood and graciously agreed to facilitate the reception "program". I can't say enough about how wonderful Marlene and her group were as musicians as well as on a personal level. They are a 5 star class act.

WeddingReviewed on May 21, 2006From Sudbury, MA

It was a pleasure working with Marlene, she is professional with a friendly and upbeat personality. The sound of the band is true to the cd that you can hear on their webpage. I highly recommend the Marlene Jazz Trio/Quartet. Great band!
