“The Hot Sardines are mischief-makers of hot jazz who started out playing underground neo-speakeasies of Brooklyn. The eight-piece ensemble has toured more than 250 cities throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. They’ve hit #1 on iTunes Jazz, spent more than a year on the Billboard charts, and racked up 20 million streams from fans in over 90 countries. Their new album, Welcome Home, Bon Voyage, captures the group in two live settings: New York City’s Joe’s Pub, and Toronto’s Koerner Hall. The Hot Sardines are, as The Times of London describes, “simply phenomenal.” (5% City of Santa Cruz Admission Tax included, service charge not included)”

“Fueled by the belief that classic jazz feeds the heart and soul, The Hot Sardines are on a mission to make old sounds new again and prove that joyful music can bring people together in a disconnected world. In the talented hands of the New York-based ensemble, music first made famous decades ago comes alive through their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and vocals from a chanteuse who transports listeners to a different era with the mere lilt of her voice.”

“The 2019–2020 season opens with an evening of sensational entertainment by this hot New York-based jazz ensemble group known for their brassy horn arrangements, rip-roaring piano tunes, and smoky vocals. ‘The charismatic front-runners of vintage jazz’ (The Guardian), The Hot Sardines whisk you back to the days of Parisian cabarets, French Quarter jazz clubs, and Harlem speakeasies as they channel the music and the style of the Jazz Age while adding their own distinct contemporary verve. Bandleader and pianist Evan Palazzo and lead singer Elizabeth Bougerol met in 2007 at a jazz jam session and bonded over their love for Fats Waller and other greats like Dinah Washington, Louis Armstrong, and Billie Holiday.”
