LIZZY & THE TRIGGERMEN Cover

Dubbed "10-piece jazz sensations" by LA Weekly, Lizzy & the Triggermen transport you back to the glamour of the Jazz Age, but with a sound and swagger that is thrillingly new (think Duke Ellington meets Amy Winehouse). The show is a joyously subversive mixture of vintage pop, show tunes, and biting originals that highlight Lizzy's wicked sense of humor (which she previously used to create Emmy-nominated TV shows). The band is helmed by operatically-trained Lizzy Shapiro, who NPR raved is "one part Eartha Kitt, one part Ella Fitzgerald, one part Amy Winehouse" and Broadway World hailed as "a powerhouse vocalist and songwriter." She created the band with musical director Dan Barrett (who played with and arranged for Benny Goodman). Their 2020 debut album, "Good Songs for Bad Times," hit #3 on the iTunes Jazz Charts alongside jazz royalty Miles Davis and Kamasi Washington. They quickly went from performing in speakeasies to selling out top venues across the country and premiere jazz festivals (Tucson Jazz Festival, San Diego Jazz Party), and breaking glass ceilings for swing music, including touring with Squeeze, co-headlining festivals with acts like Samara Joy, Nancy Sinatra, and being chosen for SXSW.
