We are delighted to have Avalon Jazz Band and DJ L.O.D. as our musical entertainment this year!


Avalon Jazz Band represents the Parisian and Golden Age swing spirit in New York City, with a repertoire of timeless American standards and French jazz songs: old classics with a hot twist celebrating France, love and music. Avalon Jazz Band offers a ride in a time machine, and brings you back to the Parisian «zazou» era of the 1930′s and 1940′s. It’s a bridge between the old world and the new, between French charm and American glam, with just a pinch of bohemian and a spoonfull of swing… the best medicine for you troubled sleepers out there! With the melodious voice of Franco-American singer Tatiana Eva-Marie and the Gypsy jazz sound of violin and guitar made famous by Django and Grappelli all the ingredients are gathered to make it hot and keep you swinging all night …
Check out some of their music here!


DJ L.O.D. , or Elodie, has spread her love for music from radio studios to dancefloors. As a Dj, she became Dj L.O.D (Lady of the Dancefloor aka Dj Elodie) and spins music from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe and further more.
Dj L.O.D would play any sound that can turn a great party into a memorable moment tailored with individual attention. Elodie has been turning various places into fire, including Fête de la Francophonie, 14 Juillet or Bastille Day.
