New York, NY (July 15, 2013) — Columbia Artists Music LLC is proud to announce the addition of The Hot Sardines to its roster for worldwide representation.

Recently named “one of the best jazz bands in New York today” by Forbes magazine, The Hot Sardines is born of a unique musical recipe: take hot jazz and sultry standards from the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s…sprinkle in the rich Dixieland sounds of New Orleans…add a dash of wartime Paris flavor…and infuse a wealth of vibrant musical surprises that hold audiences captive long after the show ends.

Led by Parisian–born singer and composer “Miz Elizabeth” Bougerol and stride piano player/bandleader Evan “Bibs” Palazzo, The Hot Sardines has brought its blustery brass lineup, dynamic rhythm section, and — always a surprise — the playful energy of the band’s tap dancer “Fast Eddy” Francisco to audiences around the world. From intimate cabaret venues like Joe’s Pub and Ginny’s Supper Club, to global stages like the Festival d’Ile–de–France and the Virginia Arts Festival, the versatile members of The Hot Sardines are masters at adapting the performance to bring life to audiences.

The Wall Street Journal declares: “Dixieland has moved on up…The Hot Sardines play high–energy traditional jazz with a Parisian accent.”
