Marie is very talented and was the perfect accompaniment for the crowd as they arrived and had cocktails. She was also charming with two little 5 year old boys who took a shine to her and hung out by the piano constantly as she played. The crowd appreciated her renditions of jazz standards and French songs. Marie also prepared a special song that I requested. My only regret as the hostess was that I did not have the opportunity to really really listen to her sing! But several guests commented that they really enjoyed her music. I give her the highest possible recommendation.
