Jazzy Ash invites the whole family to come along on a Crescent City inspired, jazzy music adventure with her band the Leaping Lizards. Arranged and enhanced for a new generation, Jazzy Ash’s music encourages kids and their grown-ups 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.
