The American Songbird~! Vintage Jazz Vocalist specializing in the music of the 20s, 30s, and 40s

American chanteuse Elise Roth cut her teeth listening to classic recordings of the Andrews Sisters, Artie Shaw, and Glenn Miller, idolising the vocalists of the Big Band Era. Freshly arrived from the United States, she has spent the past 6 years honing her craft, singing with 18-piece Big Bands and 1920s style Jazz Orchestras — and some medium and small bands, too. Audiences who have seen her perform know that every detail is pitch-perfect, and her classic presentation is second only to her repertoire of music ranging from the 1920s Jazz Age through the 1950s. She is often compared vocally to Helen Forrest, Rosemary Clooney, and especially Judy Garland. Most recently, she has been proud to debut her own band, Elise Roth & Her Harvard Squares at several dance events and vintage parties, and notably in February 2019 at the Cicada Club in Downtown Los Angeles.

Elise Roth and her Harvard Squares gave us more of the music we love dancing to last night. With only bass, guitar and trumpet to back her, Elise was on top form. Her vocal range is truly amazing. At one point she even went into Louis Armstrong mode. She certainly had his sound but, fortunately for her, not his looks. What's more she filled the place to overflowing. Finding enough space to swing out without bumping my follow was the main challenge of the night!

Oh what a night! Absolutely splendid, fabulous band. Elise Roth was in fine form along with her dapper Harvard Squares. Tiger Rag was swinging..... Thank you to everyone for making it sizzle!
