Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards (Band)


Jazzy Ash & the Leaping Lizards songs celebrate the magic of movement, with a lot of sugar and sass thrown in. Every musician in the band is also a professional music educator, which means kids get to dance and learn about New Orleans music and culture all at the same time!

Jazzy Ash grew up with her mother from New Orleans and her father from Trinidad. Music infused her home life every day, from jazz to Caribbean rhythms to the lively children’s music which was playing all the time for the kids in her mother’s home day care. She often spent summers in New Orleans with her aunts and grandparents, enjoying the culture and music that permeated their West Bank neighborhood.

Later on, after becoming mom to two sons, she earned a degree in early childhood development and embarked on her music education program, Leaping Lizards Music.

Ash and her band, Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards, have had the pleasure of performing for kids and grown-ups at Lincoln Center and Symphony Space in New York, Getty Center in California, and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, and Ann Arbor Summer Festival, among other prestigious venues.

Additionally, Jazzy Ash continues to focus on education, regularly teaching performing arts to children and music education to educators. Most recently, Jazzy Ash has hosted workshops for National HeadStart, NAEYC, and MaxFunCon. Her music has been featured by LA Times and NPR, and continues to top the Children's Music Charts.
