"Lisa performed at my husband's 40th birthday party. She is professional, kind, and extremely talented. Her music has a unique style and joyful energy that added a lovely quality of warmth and relaxation to the ambience. Guests were raving about how much they enjoyed her music for days! I highly recommend her to friends or anyone interested in throwing a really great party." -Yoon (Private Event) 

"Booked Lisa Liu Manouche Trio last minute for a backyard party in Brooklyn. They were perfect! A trio with a vocalist. Lisa assessed the event perfectly. She produced a beautiful blend of jazz and blues music which was ideal for a crowd ranging from 5 to 75 years old. The trio was lively, but didn't overpower the social part of the evening. We had a few professional jazz musicians at the party who loved their style. The whole thing required very little effort on our part. She let us know how many outlets and how much power she'd need ahead of time and took it from there. Based on Lisa's relationships and skill, she was able to assemble a trio of talented musicians who can put on a great show on short notice. Will book them again next year!" -Nellie (Private Event)

"We met Lisa Liu Manouche Trio at Rosamunde and knew right away they were the right musicians for our wedding. I feel like I'm in Paris whenever I hear them play. They are so easy to work with and tailored everything to us. There were probably our most responsive and reliable vendor. On the big day, when everything is a whirlwind, it was so nice to be able to rely on them and impress all our guests with their fantastic music. We were so lucky to have found them." -Sarah (Bride) 

"Serendipity led us to hear Lisa Liu in Williamsburg a few minutes after finding the right venue for a large birthday party we were throwing. It was obvious to us that they would be perfect for the dinner party atmosphere we were looking for. And they were great - there were fast with their email responses, on time to the venue, and really set a wonderful tone for the entire evening. They were no hassle and pleasant to work with. The set they put together followed nicely the arc of the party and mood of the crowd. And most importantly, all of our guests loved the music. " -David (Private Event)
