10-piece jazz band, Lizzy & the Triggermen, has been making major waves since they burst onto the LA music scene. Their debut EP, 'Good Songs for Bad Times,' recently hit #3 on iTunes Top US Jazz Albums.

In just a year they've headlined some of the top venues in LA (the Wiltern, the El Rey, the Troubadour) all through the word-of-mouth of their electrifying live shows, and were selected to be official artists at SXSW.  

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 Prohibition Era 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 (trained opera singer) and a dream team of jazz musicians who have played with legends like 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. 


The band has star power both in leader Liz Shapiro and in the fantastic band she has assembled. ” - The Syncopated Times
