Jacques has incorporated 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.
Jacques Lagesse is an 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.
Born from Mauritian stock, Jacques 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 Yester-years and some original songs in his own studio – music that he feels should be shared with all ages….
