Francine & Friends

Vocals – Francine Recca

Piano – Bart Rademakers

Bass – Werner Lauscher

Drums – Ron Coolen

 

This band is specialised in elegant, international music for weddings, dinners and (business) events. The repertoire is in French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brasilian), English, Dutch, German. All musicians have years of experience playing all over the world in various big bands and other ensembles. They often start with relaxed background music, always at the right volume such that everybody can easily speak with each other. They can also play ballroom and latin dance music, such as quickstep, waltz, chachacha, rhumba, jive. When needed they automatically switch to uptempo, more individual danceable songs (e.g. Gloria Estefan, Michel Telo, Pharrel Williams, Gloria Gaynor, the Communards and many more)

 

Note: Francine & Friends are not a party coverband who play only uptempo disco dance music. If you want this, they are happy to recommend other bands to you. The uptempo repertoire of Francine & Friends is meant to complete the last part of the evening. For example after the dessert and coffee, it is often the right moment to play some uptempo songs for everyone to dance and sing to.

 

Duration examples:

  • 2 to 5 sets of 40 minutes, with breaks of 20 minutes in between. Perfect for your 2 to 5 hour event.
  • optional 2 extra sets if your event is 7 hours. Suggested program which is booked mostly: Duo Francine & Romain play 1 or 2 sets of 40 minutes during a relaxed start of the event, for example during the reception or apéritif. After Francine & Romain, duo piano & bass or trio piano & bass & drums perform during 1 or 2 sets. After that the quartet will play, or if you like, all musicians can play as a quintet. This combination is often the perfect solution for business (gala) dinners where the reception is in a certain place and then guests move to the dining location.
