Since their 2010 launch, international acoustic quartet Veronneau has delighted audiences in North America, Europe and beyond with their world jazz and pop. Two recent albums landed them high on radio and Internet listening charts and won fans from over 100 countries. French Canadian vocalist Lynn Véronneaulights up the stage with her engaging presence and moving interpretations, performed in Portuguese, French, Spanish and English. The acoustic guitars of Ken Avis and David Rosenblatt and percussion of Pete Walby lend rhythm, harmony and energy to satisfying sets of samba, bossa nova, gypsy jazz and swing. Veronneau has earned rave reviews and captivated audiences in festivals, concert halls and jazz clubs in many countries. Based in Northern Virginia in the States, they’ve played such venues as the Kennedy Center's Millenium Stage, Avalon Theater, Strathmore Mansion and the legendary Blues Alley and Twins Jazz clubs.Internationally, the band have performed in the UK, USA and Canada - performing live on BBC radio and on Radio Canada.Their 2011 album Joie de Vivre – Joy of Living, rose to No. 9 in the World Music category of the Jazzweek radio charts. Their 2012 album Jazz Samba Project celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Getz/Byrd Jazz Samba album and went into the jazz top 10 and made top ten lists of radio stations in dozens of cities from Toronto to San Diego, and New Orleans to Maine.
