"No jet lag" trip to France!
Parisian classics, musettes, gypsy jazz, pure joy . . . music, dance, & play!
"[Rayor] charmed the audience, . . . a pitch-perfect chanteuse, dancing through the audience . . . connecting with young and old alike. . . musicianship was nothing short of superb!"
~ My Edmonds News, July 2018
"Rouge is amazing! The whole experience of working with them was exceptional, extremely professional & responsive.
Guests raved. . . they loved Rouge’s sound, energy & dancing!"
~ K. Price, Pacific Northwest Ballet, 2016
Parisian classics meld with Rouge’s unabashed humor,
virtuosic musicianship, dance, & warm interaction!
The quartet goes from serious ballads
to exuberant dancing, to audience volunteers,
to a hilarious fake strip-tease!
Live Django- style tune w/ fiddle:
“One of our best attended summer concert performances. . . . enthusiastic emails and voicemails from people who saw Rouge, thanking us for booking them. From the presenter’s perspective, Janet is easy to work with, prompt, organized and a good communicator.” ~ Laurie Rose, Edmonds Arts Commission
Fantastique! Singer/dancer, Janet, is an exquisitely talented performer. . .
a cut above a combination of Liza Minelli, Juliet Prowse, and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Her vocal range is magnifique, but her mixture of humor and pathos,
dramatic gestures, dead pan, comic asides, teasing flirtations
and audience connection is electrifying.
Her dancing prowess is a graceful, sensual display of poetic athleticism. The pianist and accordion player are virtuosos in their own right, and she gave them opportunities to shine as soloists.
