“Flame-haired siren Lizzy Shapiro makes vintage jazz red-hot with Lizzy & the Triggermen.”
— OC Weekly
10-piece jazz band, Lizzy & the Triggermen, has been making major waves since they burst onto the LA music scene. In less than a year they've gone from playing secret music industry hot spot, No Name, to selling out the Troubadour and now headlining the El Rey (Sat, Sept 7th) all through the word-of-mouth of their electrifying live shows.
Lizzy & the Triggermen aren't just a band - they are an immersive experience which transports the audience.
Made up of some of the best jazz musicians in the game, they are doing for 1930s music what Amy Winehouse and the Dap-Kings did for the 1960s: taking the sound of the past and making it feel fun, hip and modern.
Helmed by the award-winning vocals of Lizzy and the stewardship of jazz legend, Dan Barrett (who played with and arranged for Benny Goodman), they are breaking all of the rules - and it's working. Showgirls, tap dancers, back-flipping swing dancers, beat-boxers, L&T shows are feasts for the senses, where you never know what may happen next....
Performing a mixture of originals and boldly re-imagined covers (from operatic Duke Ellington to hot jazz Britney Spears) - they've have performed alongside bands like Nick Waterhouse, Best Coast, Black Joe Lewis - and are just as at-home on the stages of an indie music festival as a jazz club.
“A knock out home run slamdunk of a live jazz show.”
