Dubbed “10-piece jazz sensations” (LA Weekly) and “one of the hottest swing bands in LA” (Fox 11), Lizzy & the Triggermen is forging a path like no other.

Underneath the old school glamour is a captivatingly modern band who is just as at home selling out legendary venues like the Troubadour as topping the jazz charts (#3 iTunes) alongside heavyweights like Miles Davis and Kamasi Washington.

Part of Lizzy & the Triggermen’s “time-traveling genius” (Music Connection) is their ability to thrillingly marry the old with the new, simultaneously transporting the audience back in time, and forward. While the band is deeply rooted in the sound and swagger of bands like Basie and Ellington, their music is infused with a myriad of unexpected influences: from R&B to Bebop to Roots to even Broadway. As Lizzy and her musical director, Dan Barrett (who played lead trombone for Benny Goodman), decided from the jump: they weren’t going to pretend like the last 90 years of music hadn’t happened.

At the helm is Lizzy: a charismatic siren with a searing wit and soaring voice. Her “powerhouse vocals” (Broadway World), forged singing opera, recall the great old divas while still sounding completely unique and new. Her songwriting, which Janis Ian likened to Leonard Cohen, is filled with the same biting humor she used to create TV comedies for HBO, Amazon, Legendary, CBS, and the History Channel, garnering multiple Emmy nominations.

But the star power doesn’t stop with Lizzy. It emanates through her entire incredible band, a multi-generational dream team of crushers who are some of the most sought-after musicians in Los Angeles.
