After Party Entertainment
in the Palm Court by 
Sacha Boutros 

"What is it that sets her apart from the wannabes? Youthful spirit; spot-on intonation; phrasing, phrasing, phrasing; the ability to slightly alter a melody and not lose the intent of the composer; and, in the jazz world, that elusive "something" that separates a jazz singer from even a good pop singer."- George Fendel, Oregon Jazz Society

Recognized by music critics, peers, celebrities, and musical legends, Sacha is one of the top jazz artists today. Introduced by the great American entertainer Frankie Laine as his “ingénue,” and as Protege of the Legendary Red Holloway.

San Diego native, Sacha, has gone from gigging at a few San Diego clubs and U.S. festivals to touring the world and back, to having her recordings hit the top of the charts in Japan and on e-music, to even receiving a Grammy nod for best jazz and Latin jazz album in 2008 and 2013.

 2008 breakthrough album, “Simply Sacha” — a mix of standards and originals touching on jazz, Latin jazz, bossa nova, swing, and pop, and sung in five languages (English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and French) — showcased the singer’s incredible musical and linguistic range, as well as compositional skills.  Boutros appeared on Red  Holloway’s album, “Something Old Something New: Introducing Sacha Boutros,”  which resulted in a 2009 tour of Japan.  “Simply Sacha” would become the vocalist’s calling card to the world. It was the most downloaded Latin jazz release on emusic.com, was nominated for two Los Angeles Music Awards as “Best Latin Vocal” for her original song, “Amor Imposible,” and “Best Vocal,” hit number seven on the Japanese music charts, and earned a Grammy nod as best new jazz album. To this day, the album’s considered among the top 10 jazz and Latin jazz albums of 2008 in the U.S. and Japan. In 2011 Sacha released her first live album, “Sacha, Live In Hawaii”. In 2013 she released “Sacha: NY After Dark,” .

Sacha Boutros can be found doing shows in California, Hawaii, New York, London, Paris, and all points in between. When she’s not writing, performing, or recording, she splits her time between San Diego and New York City and is heavily involved in philanthropic projects close to her heart.

 Recently Sacha was given a great honor of receiving Jazz Musician of the Year by the SoCal Jazz Society.
