Helmed by the powerhouse vocals, songwriting chops and femme fatale swagger of Lizzy and a dream team of veteran jazz musicians (who have played with everyone from Buck Clayton to Benny Goodman), the band transports the audience to a glamorous, golden-era experience with bit underground edge. The band formed in 2015 by the front woman, Lizzy Shapiro whom happens to also be a trained opera singer. Supporting her powerhouse vocals are veteran jazz musicians including trombonist, Dan Barrett, and violinist, Benedikt Brydern.
