Description

The Englert will present the Hot Sardines live on Wednesday, October 21st at 8 p.m. At 6 p.m., the band will host a free public outreach discussion, sharing their experiences as touring artists on the road.

It’s a great American success story worthy of the cinema: a born-and-bred NYC actor meets a Parisian-born writer at an open jazz jam over a noodle shop in Manhattan, and before you could say “Bourbon Street Parade,” the Hot Sardines were bringing their contagious brand of joy to audiences all over the world. Bandleader Evan “Bibs” Palazzo and lead singer “Miz Elizabeth” Bougerol 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 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s, the Hot Sardines’ vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st century audiences. Vanity Fair applauds their “unique repertoire, and a sound and style that are distinctly their own,” and Forbes Magazine calls them “one of the best jazz bands in NYC today.”
