Happy New Year!

2013 ended on a high note and we are equally excited about the New Year! We’re grateful for the support and loyalty we received from our clients, partners, fans and musician friends during the past year. Thank you for being part of our musical journey!

Several cool projects are in the work for 2014 for LB Entertainment:


  • Complete program for Dubspot Producer’s Certificate in Ableton Live:  certificate to be awarded to Laurent in April.
  • Launch NuJazz en Bleu, Nu Jazz/acid jazz entertainment.
  • Expand our musical options and add new genres to our collection for LB Jazz +One and Mélange Jazz Collective.
  • Customize new jazz ensemble configurations for social, corporate events, private parties and public appearances.
  • Continue mentoring students and teaching jazz theory and technique.
  • Enhance our engagement with our professional associates and network relationships.
  • Explore and create international musical and cultural opportunities.


NU JAZZ – solo performances (NEW)

Laurent recently created and produced two new exciting pieces of original music – Sky Travel and Golden Glow – to add to his Nu Jazz portfolio using Ableton/Dubspot Studio music environment for solo electronic performances. The style blends elements of electro, funk, dance, tecno, hip-hop, live sax and improvisation.  Both compositions reflect Laurent’s unique sound and can be heard on our website at www.lbentertainmentintl.com/music/
