You will not find sweeter, more authentic or honest people than Jeff and Isabelle. They were always aware of my budget constraints and made many suggestions to help save money. They have a prodigious repertoire of many styles of music and relationship with many dozens of musicians for any occasion. They made my daughter's wedding a masterpiece with ease and grace. They quickly got my vision for the event, met with my daughter to help her pick the music. They had great equipment and most important - they are amazing musicians! My assignment was complex. play "soft" music as the guests arrived, be my back up band to perform an original tune during the ceremony, play soothing music during the reception and dinner, then transform into a kick-ass swing band for the dancing. The transitions were seamless and the mood from the moment they started playing until the last dance was magical. You cannot go wrong using them as your musicians for any occasion."

"Jeff and Isabelle are stupendous as "Duo Gadjo". Uva has many musicians, Duo Gadjo is tops. Their lively music along with a mix of sultry french makes them a Uva favorite in Napa. The Duo has a magnetic stage presence, such that the interaction with each other and the guests is a definite draw. Of interest is the different instruments and genres that they play, all very enjoyable."
Tony Diaz, (owner UVA restaurant) Napa, CA
"When it was time for my husband to say good-bye to a 33 year career in County Government Administration, I decided to throw a Retirement Party for him that was joyous and fun. No speeches! I had heard Duo Gadjo multiple times at different venues around the Bay Area and loved their engaging eclectic vibe of music. Yes, they are "Jazz with a French Twist" but also are expert at everything from The Blues, to French and American Love Songs of the 30's and 40's. From slide guitar to Washboard and beyond. Their professional yet personal touch never disappoints."
Ginger Tandy, Lafayette, CA
"Isabelle and Jeff transported us to a French Bistro with their music. Everyone loved the narration during the performance. It made it all the more special to learn about the song writers and the stories behind the songs. It was a well-deserved standing ovation at the end of the evening. Look forward to having you back!"
Shannon Van Every (Presenter of The Club at West Park), Roseville, CA
"Duo Gadjo exceeded my expectations in so many ways. With a busy house they jumped right into the fold and set up without help, kicked off their set and took it from there. They were able to tailor their set to the mood of the party with a great deal of variety all at a perfect level of volume. Had I known that they'd be such a hit for our guests I would have booked them for longer. However, now I left guests wanting and looking forward to our next soirée."
Ryan R, San Francisco, CA
"What a pleasure it has been to present Duo Gadjo to many of my clients over the years! For a variety of events from an informal rustic picnic to a formal affair, their performances have delighted all who attended and added greatly to the success of the event. Not only are they are consummate professionals, both vocally and instrumentally, but their show is top notch. They are fabulously entertaining. I look forward to more fun and wonderful performances with Duo Gadjo!"
