Entertainment, featuring Lady J Band. 

Lady J combines the best-loved jazz standards with reimagined pop tunes and funky soul, to take audiences on a good-vibes-only musical journey that is elegant, yet funky.

Born and raised in Quebec, Lady J and partner Felix Frechette (guitar) have performed more than 2700 shows together since teaming up in 2006. Residents of Dubai since 2015, they continue to perform hundreds of shows together each year, and are thrilled to be joined by Andy Lynn on keys, and Alex Gil on drums for a full band experience.

Together, the Band create contemporary vibes with an old soul. Be prepared to sing along, bob your head, and move your feet!
