The jazz inspired musician covers a wide array of forgotten musical greats and surprises her audience with fine arrangements of Latin classics and original song. "With a laid-back European feel and a breezy, sensual voice, Nathalie Alice's music sweeps you along the Seine River and puts you right in the middle of a sidewalk Parisian cafe. She really knows how to create a mood - and once you've arrived there, you never want to leave. Magnifique! " ~ (Christina Suwa, LIFETIME NETWORKS)

Evan Skrederstu
The 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau displays the first-ever graffiti-inspired label designed by renowned Brooklyn artist “Kaves.” To continue this trend, celebrated street artist Evan Skrederstu will be creating a Beaujolais Nouveau-inspired artwork live at the event.

Evan Skrederstu was born in Los Angeles. At the age of thirteen, he became fascinated with graffiti and participated in the movement. He slowly made his way from the Freeways and the Los Angeles River into the entertainment industry, working with clients ranging from commercial Art Directors to Disney and museums. While working as a scenic painter he also took part in body painting events such as Howard Stern’s private birthday party and began painting bugs and working on "The Ulysses Guide to the Los Angeles River" with longtime collaborator, Christopher Brand.

The book, released in 2008, was a great success. The art from the book was highlighted in its own museum show at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and was praised in various publications such as the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Presently Evan continues to explore new techniques, mediums and concepts in order to better his work. He also tattoos professionally at the world famous Good Time Charlie’s. His work deals with a vast array of subject matter usually encapsulated in a concrete or a tropical setting.

takes his inspiration daily from images in his mind. Influenced by the growth of singer songwriters from all kinds of genre, he builds his own style from soul, funk and Brazilian rhythms. PATjE is the fourth of five children. He was raised between Marseille, Geneva and Barcelona. His very first experience in entertainment was opera and theater thanks to his brother, for which, he grew to become passionate as of age fourteen. After his high school diploma he did his Bachelors in America to improve his language skills. At that time his friends gave him the nickname PATJE (diminutive of Patrice). Returning back to Europe, he worked in advertising and became the editor of a magazine. When he left this multinational firm and moved to Barcelona, Spain, in order to study at university, music and his love for entertainment came back into his life... He decided to pursue this growing passion in Los Angeles. He discovered facets of himself and started growing and gathering popularity in this environment. In 2002 he started playing with his band in many clubs around Los Angeles and released his first single. On stage he started singing in French, English and Spanish. He began a new journey with his friend Ioannis; with him he played between Bora Bora and Paris. It was with Ioannis that he was the opening act for Jeanne Mas.

Betsy Bogart displays a rare combination of talents: in addition to performing all over the world as a professional recording artist and prize-winning songwriter, she is also an educator who has taught French language and culture at Los Angeles area universities.

Betsy sings in English, Spanish, German, and Italian, but given her unique background, it comes as no surprise that she specializes in French and Francophone popular songs. She brings her own artistry and a touch of California style to classics recorded by such artists as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, Gilbert Bécaud, Julien Clerc, and others.

A multi-talented vocalist and musician, Betsy accompanies herself on piano, electric keyboards, or guitar. With a folk rock style often compared to singer/songwriter greats Carly Simon, Carole King, and Stevie Nicks, she is equally at ease singing jazzy standards, the blues, and her own compositions. Her songwriting talents were rewarded with Grand Prizes from both the American and Music City Song Festivals.

Betsy often performs for special events, but also entertains at French restaurants such as Chez Nous in Toluca Lake, Marché Moderne and Pinot Provence in Costa Mesa, Frenchy’s Bistro in Long Beach, l’Hirondelle in San Juan Capistrano, and Brasserie des Artistes in West Hollywood. Some of her favorite venues, however, are school and university auditoriums and classrooms, where her special gifts as a teacher and musician allow her to combine elements of language, music, and history in an entertaining, interactive experience for students of French.

A unique entertainer who projects warmth and intimacy in venues of any size, Betsy’s humor and enthusiasm combine with superb musical and language skills to delight any group or event.
