Tatiana Eva-Marie, French singer for Bastille Day

Avalon Jazz Band was a special guest at the French Embassy in Washington for July 14th, the French National Day, also known as “Bastille Day”. There were over 2000 people invited and chefs from the most prestigious area restaurants offered a buffet of mouth-watering creations: macarons, pâtés, fromages… it was fabulous! A feast worthy of François Vatel. Many people were dancing and it was a lovely event. We performed only French jazz this time, playing timeless classics that the Americans in the audience recognized, and some covers of Jean Sablon, Charles Trenet and Yves Montand which the French audience was suprised and delighted to hear. The Ambassador François Delattre gave a beautiful and inspiring speach, followed of course by la Marseillaise… and champagne! Tatiana Eva-Marie wore her now famous dress and looked like a creature from the past. She was all teary-eyed when the national anthem was played, and dreamt of her bohemian adolescence in Paris. Vive la France!

Tatiana Eva-Marie’s new dress

Our lovely singer Tatiana Eva-Marie was overwhelmed with joy when she received a cute little package in the mail last week. It was a breathtakingly beautiful dress she had ordered online at Bitter Root Vintage. Here is how they describe it: “Spectacular vintage 1980′s heavily beaded black silk dress with an iconic 1920′s profile. Striking cut-out back, shoulder pads, hourglass shape.” Tatiana Eva-Marie has decided that she will wear her new dress at the Bastille Day reception given by the French Embassy in Washington D.C. on July 14th. Avalon Jazz Band is very proud to be a special guest at this important celebration.
