Beverly's exploration of french repertoire began a few years ago with the discovery of lyrics en français for some of the standards from the Great American Songbook, including Cole Porter's "Night and Day" and George Gershwin's "Embraceable You". Along the way she added songs by Charles Trenet ("Que Reste-t-il"/"I Wish You Love" and "Beyond the Sea"/"La Mer") and some French chestnuts like "La Vie En Rose" and "J'ai Deux Amours". The Barrie Jazz and Blues Festival featured a one hour concert of this material on the mainstage for their 2008 festival. Now, with the generous help of artistic director Dominique Denis, pianist Tom Howell, and the Alliance Français de Toronto (AFT), Beverly has added works by Serge Gainsbourg, Claude Nougaro, Georges Brassens and several others to her repertoire. AFT called it "Parlez-Vous Jazz?" and began their 2009 season with the 90 minute cabaret featuring Beverly, Tom Howell, bassist Jordan O'Connor, clarinettist Caitlin Smith and trumpeter Jake Wilkinson. Whether for cabaret, cocktail or festival, this music swings, flirts, laments and romances through many phases of love, life and jazz.








"a stunning, riveting performer with a great gutsy voice.”
The Globe and Mail

"There is something deliciously dangerous in the European cabaret tradition,” says Lyne Tremblay, one of Canada's most respected performers. "Some times as I work the crowd, with the follow spot as my shadow, I can see the sweet fear of humiliation in their eyes – ‘oh please, please don't stop here…don't make me sing….please'…it is just such yummy bad girl fun…”

A multi disciplinary performer who started training when she was two, Lyne first started touring professionally as a dancer when she was in her late teens on a South and Central American tour with the Eddy Toussaint Dance Company . When she returned to Montreal she was a regular performer on the weekly TV variety circuit. In 1984 she accepted one of musical theatre's toughest roles– "Cassandra” the slinky, sexy Siamese in Andrew Lloyd Weber's original Canadian production of "Cats”.

After a grueling international audition process in Paris, London, and New York, Lyne won the role of "Sally Bowles" in the Paris production of Cabaret, directed by Jerome Savary.This production played Paris for six months and toured throughout Europe. It is here Lyne learned the "chops” of European Cabaret…where European cabaret is taken quite seriously.

Other roles of note include "Anita" in West Side Story, "Nava" in the original Montreal production of Jerusalem and a number of critically acclaimed shows for the French Theater of Toronto including "La La La Mine de Rien” which was recorded at The Glen Gould Studio.

Lyne's feature film work is equally eclectic. She appeared in the Louis Malle film Atlantic City with Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon. She played Angel Eyes in the cult classic Night Magic with Carole Laure with music by Lewis Fury and Leonard Cohen and in 2007 a Bravofact short dramatic film was written for her, entitled " Rise Up”, which was shown at film festivals around the world including an American Film Institute screening which premiered at Man's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.

Some of the highlights of her television credits include The Newsroom, Street Legal and E.N.G. Blue Murder,The City and she has also performed extensively on National Radio.

In 1996 Lyne created “Gauche”, the one woman cabaret show directed by John Evans, which played to critical acclaim and SRO audiences. “A cabaret Goddess”, said impresario Jaymz Bee.

The cabaret experience has been a trampoline to launch Lyne's extensive work as a bi-lingual host for numerous corporate events, including Canada Post, IBM, and Nissan, where her professionalism and easy going warmth have made her a hit with audiences in the professional conference domain.

Lyne has had a career that has taken her around the world, but sometimes a triple threat just needs to make choices and recently Lyne has focused on her original music and singing. In 2004 she released her debut album “Break'n Enter” produced by Lyne and John Evans and was nominated for best Jazz Vocalist of the Year for The National Jazz Awards in 2004. “Break n Enter” was selected as one of the top ten albums of the year by Jazz FM 91.1 FM in Toronto, Ontario












Marj started her dance career at the age of 11, late for a ballet dancer, but her talent quickly careened her into the world of dance. Ballet classes from the local dance studio turned into classes and training from the masters at the National Ballet School – Betty Oliphant, Lois Smith, Erik Bruhn, Celia Franca. Years of intensive study and performance allowed Marj to express her true passion of dance. Later, jazz and tap teachers would include Marie Ann Longlade, Jack Lemmon, George Randolph, and Bill Orlowski. She has performed countless times on the O’Keefe stage and was also in the corps of the Canadian Opera Company.

Having achieved honours in all Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (I.S.T.D.) examinations at the National Ballet School, and in all Canadian Dance Teachers Association (C.D.T.A.) examinations, Marj knew her future would be in teaching. She has given workshops all across Canada..her unique choreography in demand. She still holds workshops for teachers to hone their skills.

Choreography comes easily to Marj and over the years she has created audition routines for television commercials, Canada’s Wonderland, guested at dance workshops, worked with skaters at the Granite Club, choreographed musicals for Community Theatres, and for many years owned a studio in Toronto teaching all facets of dance. Several of her former students now have careers in dance, television, and theatre. She created the dance division at the North York Y.M.C.A., teaching and choreographing hundreds of students. She is also an adjudicator for dance competitions.

Marj currently teaches at the Tranter Institute in Barrie, Ontario.

“The joy of teaching is watching a student become a dancer..watching the dancer become a professional".

"To dance is to breathe".
