The Hot Sardines — Speakeasy Nights

Take a blustery brass lineup, layer it over a rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso in the Fats Waller vein, and tie the whole thing together with a one-of-the-boys frontwoman with a voice from another era, and you have the Hot Sardines (We haven’t even told you about the tap dancer yet).

Bandleader Evan “Bibs” Palazzo and lead singer Miz Elizabeth combine with the Sardine ensemble of powerhouse musicians — and their very own tap dancer — to play “hot jazz” as it was in the era when live music was king... with a little glamour, a little grit and a lot of passion. Even while giving voice to the history-defining jazz of the ’20s, ’30s and ’40s, the Hot Sardines’ vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences. 

“One of the best jazz bands in NYC today.” — Forbes
