The first New Orleans jazz band for kids!


Jazzy Ash grew up with a mother from New Orleans and a father from Trinidad, and music infused her home life every day, from jazz to Caribbean rhythms to the lively children’s music which was playing all the time for the kids in her mother’s home day care. She often spent summers in New Orleans with her aunts and grandparents, enjoying the culture and music that permeated their West Bank neighborhood. Later on, after becoming mom to two sons, she earned a degree in early childhood development and embarked on her music education program, Leaping Lizards Music, and that evolved into a band, Jazzy Ash and The Leaping Lizards. They've had the pleasure of performing at Lincoln Center and Symphony Space in New York, Getty Center in California, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, and the Ann Arbor Summer Festival. Jazzy Ash's music has been featured by LA Times and NPR, and continues to top the children's music charts.

Series tickets for four children's shows available (this show, plus Justin Roberts 1/13, Gemini 3/24, and Recess Monkey 5/5)!
