What clients say about Marlene and her ensembles 

"Marlene and The Marlene Jazz Trio are absolutely fabulous!

In the past two years, they have been enhancing my events with a wide range of talents, from their elegant background dinner music to their upbeat, fun loving entertainment. Marlene's vocals are amazing, in particular.

I would recommend Marlene and The Marlene Jazz Trio to anyone who is looking for exceptional entertainment, with a professional attitude, and at a reasonable price."

"Dear Marlene,

We cannot thank you enough for the performance of a lifetime at our wedding! You were everything we could have hoped for and more and you all blew everyone away. Everyone commented on how incredible you were and every song you played was absolutely perfect. Having my dad sit in was extremely memorable and your professionalism flowing right along with songs you weren't even familiar with was top notch. We listened to your CD on our honeymoon and the mood was just.... in a word... ideal. We have no doubt you are destined for greatness, well, you are already there, and it's just so cool that we can say THIS woman played at OUR wedding!!

For anyone considering hiring Marlene or the full Jazz Trio, I cannot recommend her enough. I began my search for music all online. I searched through the sites of many jazz bands that advertised their services in the New England area. I was really disappointed at first - so many just sounded like a bad lounge singer with a Casio (no offense people!!) and THEN I discovered Marlene. The first song I heard on the Jazz Trio site was Summertime and from the first note I was literally blown away - I knew - this is the one. We put our wedding together in a short amount of time and Marlene was so helpful, kind and considerate as we planned the details. The day of our wedding we walked into the reception hall and some of my first words to my friends and new husband were "Oh wow! The music! Uh! The music!" and they'd smile with wide eyes like "I KNOW!". Our first dance was My Funny Valentine and Marlene's voice was like an angel's soaring around us. The band played a variety of songs that engaged every generation there. There is no question - if you are looking for some serious jazz and more at your wedding - HIRE THE MARLENE JAZZ TRIO!! Superior skills and sensibility, kind and wonderful people, simply the best. If you want to bring the quality of the Newport Jazz Festival to your wedding or special occasion, you've found the right group here.

Rob and I send our love and deepest gratitude to you all. Thanks so very, very much.

Robert and Jessica Duperre

"Dear Marlene, WOW!

Thanks so much for performing at our wedding—we could not have asked for a better band! You were awesome! The music you chose was perfect—and most memorable for me was “Caravan” and , of course, “What a Wonderful World”, thank you. So many of our guests raved about you—and for good reason. Your quartet surpassed our highest hopes—we feel so fortunate to have had you perform. Thank you!"

-Kim & Ray

"Marlene, thanks to you and the trio for making our wedding day so extra special. Everyone remarked how GREAT the music was and we loved the music. All of you made it so special for us. The day would have really lacked something important and lovely without you. Your music really made the ambience and added to the intimacy of the setting. And special thanks for the last added song. I think I'll always remember our wedding when I hear "I've Got a Crush on You". So thank YOU."

-Pat & Michael

The Marlene Jazz Trio played at my recent wedding. They are the absolute best: world-class musicians and delightful people. The wedding guests ranged in age from 3 to 95, and everyone was impressed by them. Their musical range was perfect and their talent matched it. They made our special day even more wonderful. As you can see, I recommend them wholeheartedly and enthusiastically. We would hire them for any special event—at least until they are “discovered” and we can no longer afford them—and I believe that day will come.”

-Mike Lew

"The Marlene Jazz Trio was the hit of my wedding! Guests spoke of the wonderful music for months after the event. In fact, the DJ was so impressed with their talent and professionalism that he recommended the group to his niece, winning the Trio another job. Marlene's friendly personality and enthusiasm made her a joy to work with."

-Rhonda Haller

“Our wedding reception experience with The Marlene Jazz Quartet was terrific. I can’t count how many times our guests asked who they were and how we had found them. Our guests thought the music was the best they’ve heard at any wedding. Their songs included a variety of jazz, dance and slow songs which the guests absolutely loved. They did a great job on our wedding song and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a classy band.

-John and Tina McCormick
