- The Hot Sardines
Formed by band leader and pianist Evan Palazzo and vocalist Elizabeth Bougerol in 2007 over a shared love of 1920s and ’30s jazz and pop, the pair began recruiting like-minded young players via Craigslist and soon became the talk and toast of the Lower East Side and Brooklyn scenes; from there it was onto a major slot at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing festival, 17 sold-out nights at Joe’s Pub, international tours, and an album deal with Decca/Universal Music Classics.
Here’s the band performing the peppy standard “Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen”:
The Hot Sardines will perform at the Bard College SummerScape Spiegeltent in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, on August 17 at 8:30pm. Tickets are $40. For more information, call (845) 758-7900 or visit http://fishercenter.bard.edu/.
