About Elise

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

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.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No worries, please let us know as soon as possible and we'll accommodate the change.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about an hour before the gig; if there are more logistical factors or a larger ensemble, we can be there earlier! Of course if there is a specific time requested, we can do our best to accommodate.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

If there are specific songs you'd absolutely like to hear, do let us know! We cater our set lists to the style and era of music we're performing, as well as the desired vibe of the event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! Unless the venue is specifically for performance, in which case we will get in touch to see what equipment the venue prefers to use.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, although there is a chance I know it already! If it's a specific arrangement or style that is not in my usual repertoire, there will be a small additional charge to account for rehearsal time etc.

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!
