One night only at the Annenberg Theater, Modernism Week and Jazzville present Lizzy and the Triggermen. Dubbed "10-piece jazz sensations" (LA Weekly) and "one of the hottest swing bands in LA" (Good Day LA), Lizzy & the Triggermen has been making waves since they burst onto the SoCal scene. True to their speakeasy vibe, the band first began performing in a legendary, secret club in LA. Word-of-mouth about their incredible live shows quickly spread, and soon they were headlining some of the top venues in town, including the Wiltern, the El Rey, and the Troubadour.
Wailing horns, killer vocals, and lethal rhythm section, the band channels the electrifying swagger of the big band sound and makes it feel new and modern through a mixture of originals and re-imagined vintage gems. Showgirls and dancers add an entertaining element of vintage nightclub glamour.
At the helm of it all 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. But the star power doesn’t stop with Lizzy. It emanates through her entire incredible band, a multi-generational dream team of crushers who have played with everyone from Wynton Marsalis to Benny Goodman.
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 Broadway to Indie Rock to even Opera. Their 2020 debut album, Good Songs for Bad Times, hit #3 on iTunes Jazz charts. There is no doubt that what Lizzy & the Triggermen are doing is audaciously against the grain…but it is clearly resonating across an incredibly broad range of audiences. jazzvillepalmsprings.com
