The Hot Sardines

"One of the best jazz bands in New York today." - Forbes

"The charismatic front-runners of vintage jazz." - The Guardian

At the helm of the Jazz revival, New York's The Hot Sardines are bringing a classic sound to a new generation. The group's debut album spent over a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart in 2014, and was named one of the best jazz albums of the year by iTunes.In 2015, the band played over 100 shows in the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Since answering the call of a Craigslist ad seeking musicians for a jazz jam session in 2007, founding members Evan Palazzo and Elizabeth Bougerol have been exploring the world of jazz and drawing influence from some of the greats including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald. The group has performed hits Wake Up in Paris and an Ella Fitzgerald cover of When I Get Low I Get High featuring Alan Cumming (The Good Wife, Cabaret).

Quality is timeless. Just ask The Hot Sardines. With their brassy horn arrangements, rollicking piano melodies, and silky vocals listeners are transported to an earlier time in music. Their self-titled debut album, named by iTunes as one of the best jazz albums of 2014, spent more than a year on the Billboard Jazz Chart, debuting in the top 10 alongside Michael Bublé, and Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. The accolades began pouring in for the band: Downbeat called them "one of the most delightfully energetic bands on New York's 'hot' music scene," while The London Times praised their "crisp musicianship" and "immaculate and witty showmanship," declaring them "simply phenomenal."
