International acoustic quartet VERONNEAU have been captivating festival, concert hall and jazz club audiences across North America and Europe with their vocal and guitar based world-jazz. A delicious blend of bossa nova, jazz, samba and swing performed in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

Jazz Samba Project entered national and regional jazz top 10 charts in dozens of cities from Toronto to New Orleans and has gone on to inspire a music festival, documentary movie and stage play, all featuring the band.
Based in Washington DC, Veronneau have attracted capacity crowds to venues such as the Kennedy Center, Strathmore, and Blues Alley. Featuring musicians from Canada, UK and USA, Veronneau's international tours, radio and internet airplay have won them world-wide fans.
