About Musique a Trois ............
In spite of the name, we are a 4 (and sometimes 5) piece band, playing up to 8 instruments between us. We are known for our special cocktail of French ‘chansons’ old and modern - from Piaf to Pink Martini – Django style Gypsy Jazz, traditional Swing, Jazz and Latin in French and English, and rarely performed favourites from artists as wide ranging as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Caro Emerald, Robert Plant, Leonard Cohen …. All specially arranged for us by Simon Newton, including his superb arrangement of Dave Brubeck’s Take 5, with vocals, in English and French, and Beth’s own award winning song ‘Just Her Younger Man! '
We bring an evening of great musicianship plus audience engagement; clean and classy cabaret-style fun, or something with a little sauce, depending on the venue and audience. We create shows that are perfect for intimate theatres and cabaret venues, where the audience are treated to both the accomplished on-stage performance of the songs and back-stage shenanigans of the quartet, as they put the show together and try to manage the glamorous but irrepressible Madame J.
We also do performances suitable for festivals, pubs, clubs, bistros, restaurants and private functions, where the focus is just on the music, or includes the cabaret comedy and glitz, depending on the event. Bethany Jameson our Anglo-Belgian star and front lady is a powerful singer and terrific entertainer in any language (she also sings in Italian, Spanish and Russian!)
Many of our customers and venues create a French themed evening of food and wine, and even invite audiences to dress up as ‘Cabaret’ as they dare. We can organise a wine tasting evening and include the notorious Absinthe, known as ‘La Fée Verte’. (The Green Fairy). Book well ahead if you would like us for Bastille Day!
We are well organised and professional, and will ensure you and your friends, family, audience or customers have a truly fabulous and unforgettable evening.
Our set list includes songs/chansons made famous by Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Django Reinhardt as well as some contemporary and original tunes in the swing style. You can see us performing songs marked with an * on our AUDIO AND VISUAL page, plus a short compilation show reel including some of the other tunes from our set which are included in our cabaret show.
