Jazzy Ash & The Leaping Lizards

April 5, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center

JAZZY ASH & THE LEAPING LIZARDS (UNITED STATES)

GRADES K-4

Come along on a Crescent City-inspired, jazzy music adventure! Swinging songs tell the multicultural story of Jazz in America with a lot of movement and joy thrown in, New Orleans-style. Inspired by her childhood and family roots, Jazzy Ash weaves the sounds of gypsy jazz, zydeco, swing, blues and Dixieland to encourage kids 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 fire flies.
