THE HOT SARDINES

Old-time hot jazz with new-time style!

Fusing musical influences from New York, Paris, and New Orleans, The Hot Sardines transforms songs from another era into pop music for this century. Its sound is steeped in hot, foot-stomping jazz, salty stride piano, and the kind of music Louis Armstrong, Django Reinhardt, and Fats Waller used to make. Bandleader and pianist Evan “Bibs” Palazzo and lead singer Elizabeth Bougerol are joined by a blustery brass lineup, a powerhouse rhythm section led by a stride-piano virtuoso, and their very own tap dancer!

Palazzo and Bougerol met in 2007 after they both answered a Craigslist ad about a jazz jam session above a Manhattan noodle shop. The unlikely pair bonded over their love for Fats Waller. Influenced also by such greats as Dinah Washington, Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday, they began playing open mic nights and small gigs and by 2011, they headlined Midsummer Night Swing at New York’s Lincoln Center.

The Hot Sardines’ 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. The accolades began pouring in for the band: Downbeat called The Hot Sardines “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.” “We found ourselves in the perfect place at the perfect time,” says Palazzo. “As we explored this 100 year-old jazz, we began to look at it as a journey forward, not so much as a look back. This is music for today, not a museum piece.”

On French Fries & Champagne, The Hot Sardines' new album, the jazz collective broadens its already impressive palette, combining covers and originals as they effortlessly channel New York speakeasies, Parisian cabarets and New Orleans jazz halls.
