About

 

One part Boardwalk Empire, one part Amy Winehouse, Lizzy & the Triggermen is an all-star 10-piece jazz band which  specializes in everything from prohibition songs about sex, drugs and murder…to hot jazz covers of Britney Spears. The band is made up of some of the best jazz musicians in LA, guys who have played with  Benny Goodman, Wynton Marsalis, Rosemary Clooney, Woody Herman – and led by the power-house vocals of classically-trained Lizzy whose award-winning voice has been featured in everything from Spike Jonze films to Tanglewood to the opera stages of Italy to national commercials with Snoop Dogg.  The band has a recurring jazz night at one of the premiere music venues in Los Angeles (No Name) and recently performed on a bill with Best Coast, Nick Waterhouse, Black Joe Lewis in a new music festival in Palm Springs, as well as headlining this year’s Dapper Day (the Comic Con of the retro world). When not singing, Lizzy is a successful Hollywood screenwriter/actress. She created and starred in a TV show in 2016 (History Channel) which garnered 2 Emmy nominations. She is currently co-creating a new TV show with Jill Soloway (Transparent) which just sold to Amazon – and as has two TV shows in development with Ben Stiller.
