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. 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). The Marlene Jazz Ensemble is also available for instrumental-only performances.

***********************************************************************************************************************************

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 is currently the Boston Fairmont Copley house ensemble for the exclusive Bacchanale dinner and wine series. She also performed at the 2008 Philippine International festival, Boston Arts Festivals, the famed Acton Jazz Café, Beehive and Ryles Club for the UN-sponsored benefit to remove landmines in Mozambique, Worcester First Night and Boston tv's "Fernando's Hideaway" and has appeared on Peruvian tv and concert halls. She was featured in an interview by WGBH Boston's Jazz Gallery host, Al Davis and her second CD with Blue Earth Music, "Marlene LIVE With a Little Help From Her Friends" enjoys national and Canadian airplay and features New England's best, including Greg Hopkins (trumpet), Dave Landoni (bass), Brooke Soffermann (drums) and Patrick Mottaz (guitar).

Her CDs, Crying Days and Marlene LIVE With a Little Help From Her Friends are available on itunes and other digital sites.

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!

Marlene and Doug were amazing!!! I wish I could leave more then 5 stars. I hired them to play at the Boston Public Garden for a proposal. They arrived early, sounded amazing, and made it a lovely event. When I have another need for a jazz band, I know who I'm calling!
