Hire / Book Jacques Lagesse for entertainment at your next conference, corporate function, year end event, awards ceremony, or private event.
Jacques Lagesse is a solo entertainer with a velvet-lined voice, accompanied by the mellow tones of the acoustic and jazz guitars. Apart from the soft percussive rhythm machine, all music is played entirely live. A minimal set-up space is required. Jacques Lagesse has recently introduced a cabaret set featuring music from the Big Band Swing era, which is done to backing tracks. His repertoire consists mainly of popular brands of Laid-back Jazz Standards and Evergreen Romantic Ballads. With his classic dress sense, one is reminded of Sinatra in his hey- day.
An Audio Engineer by profession, Jacques Lagesse has placed great emphasis on the right sound – a soothing unobtrusive ambience is guaranteed.
Born from Mauritian stock, Jacques Lagesse has a strong flair for Latin rhythms and has included many Bossa Nova and Samba tunes to his expansive repertoire. He enjoyed a contract in Dubai where he performed to a cosmopolitan audience at a few of the major hotels. Jacques continues to record the Music of Yesteryears and some original songs in his own studio – music that he feels should be shared with all ages….
Jacques’ clients include the likes of: PPC, Hewlett Packard, SAP (Software), Nedcor, The Westcliff Hotel, Summerplace, The Saxon, Vodacom, Nissan and South African Breweries.
Apart from performing at up-market company functions around the country with his full complement of music and PA equipment, he has the ability to perform without any power source (“unplugged” is the term we use…).
