Hot Sardines are WHLI - Artist of the Week

Bookmark and Share

It's a great American success story. A born-and-bred NYC actor meets a Parisian-born writer at an open jazz jam over a noodle shop in Manhattan, and from there the Hot Sardines were born. 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 1920s, '30s, and '40s, the Hot Sardines' vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences. Forbes Magazine calls them "one of the best jazz bands in NYC today."
