Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards

Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards
Biography

Jazzy Ash invites the whole family to come along on a Crescent City inspired, jazzy music adventure with her band the Leaping Lizards. Her songs celebrate the magic of movement, with a lot of sugar and sass thrown in, New Orleans–style. Her latest album, Swing Set features gypsy jazz, zydeco, swing, blues, and Dixieland to encourage kids and families to celebrate the music of New Orleans as part of the American folk music heritage.

In concert, Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards perform originals like “Throw Me Something Mista” that conjures the spirit of a Mardi Gras parade as well as jazz standards including “When the Saints go Marching In” and Louis Armstrong’s “Heebie Jeebies” in front of gorgeous projected images of New Orleans, Congo Square, the Louisiana bayou and even a field of fireflies.

“Christoval fully connects with her own family’s roots yet incorporates those decades-old traditions into 21st century kids music.” – NPR​
