In September, we will feature The Little Lizzy Combo.
Helmed by the "powerhouse vocals" (Broadway World) of classically-trained Lizzy, the Little Lizzy Combo dives deep into the musical treasures of the 1920s-1940s. Lizzy is most known as the frontwoman and songwriter of Lizzy & the Triggermen, dubbed "10-piece jazz sensations" (LA Weekly) and "one of the hottest swing bands in LA" (Fox 11). Their debut album, "Good Songs for Bad Times," hit #3 on iTunes Jazz charts. The Little Lizzy Combo features the same incredible musicians as the big band, including Dan Barrett, Nate Kettner and Sam Roche, but in a much more intimate musical setting which thrillingly showcases Lizzy's songbird voice and the band's world-class musicianship.
With wailing horns, killer vocals, and a lethal rhythm section, the band channels the electrifying swagger of the '20s and '30s big bands and makes it feel new and modern through a mixture of originals and re-imagined vintage gems.
