""Sonny and Perley, a tight jazz duo with a richly varied musical turf."
The Hartford Courant

"Compelling. A wonderful example of Jazz and Bossa Nova at its finest."
The Bennington Banner

The exciting duo of Sonny Daye and Perley Rousseau achieves a rare musical symbiosis. The husband and wife team have spent the last several years developing and perfecting their unique blend of Jazz, Bossa Nova, American Songbook Standards, and International Cabaret which has become their musical signature. They engagingly perform the timeless standards of the Great American Songbook such as Gershwin and Porter as well as the irresistible Bossa Nova melodies of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Sonny and Perley perform as a duo, trio, quartet or quintet for concerts, festivals, theme shows, intimate cabaret, restaurants, nightclubs and private events.

Their 4 CD releases "Love Dance" (1996), "East of the Sun" (1998), "Let it Happen" (2004),"Sonny and Perley Live! Love is Here to Stay" (2009) have generated international air play and received critical acclaim. It is in live performance; however, where Sonny and Perley truly shine. Throughout New York, New England and in Europe, the duo has captivated audiences with their spontaneity, warmth, musical honesty and broad repertoire.
