Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards

Gunter Theatre

Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards enchant young audiences with original music inspired by traditional New Orleans jazz culture, mixing early jazz, zydeco, be-bop, and swing in a carnival of sound.


Influenced by the music from her mother’s hometown of New Orleans and her father’s Trinidadian culture, Jazzy Ash has been praised by Sirius XM Radio’s Kids Place Live as their “favorite new musical discovery” and continues to top the children’s music charts. With a full six-piece band and upbeat catchy music styles of jazz and zydeco, get ready to have a grand ol’ time on a swingin’ musical tour of New Orleans.
