Jazz Affair has now been around for ten years, making their way as one of the rare Canadian a cappella groups working in jazz. This sextet combines six unique voices that unite into a dynamic and colourful whole: Luce Bélanger (soprano) Marie-Pier Deschênes (mezzo-soprano), Camille Legault Coulombe (alto), Jean-François Aubin (tenor), Louis Laprise (baryton) and Christian B. Poulin (bass). Their repertoire is composed of jazz standards and original arrangements of famous songs, to which they add a jazz flavour.

From the very start, they drew attention by the quality of their arrangements and their interpretations. Their work has been recognized at the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival in New York, where they walked away with two prizes in 2012. Since then, the band has made many appearances at large-scale shows and festivals in Canada (a tour in British Columbia in 2018 and a tour in the Maritime in 2019). Jazz Affair has two albums in its discography: Wishes (2019) and Jam (2017).

[…] they sing the double bass and percussion parts. The rhythm section is just their voices, without any piano accompaniment. And they do all this like champs, as the locals might say.

— Serge Truffaut, Le Devoir, Montréal

[…] this a cappella sextet revisits the great standards of jazz with charm and intelligence.

— Christophe Rodriguez, Le Journal de Montréal
