ABOUT THE SHOW

Somewhere in the night a melody spills out of a smokey alley and bounces down the cobblestone. That’s where you’ll find Dizzy & Fay; through the secret door in your heart, singing love songs to the American Songbook.

In the past year, creators Mark Lalama and Amanda Walther have co-written a grand collection of original jazz songs that echo timeless standards. Think late nights, jazz cigarettes, AMSRomance and songs you swear you’ve loved your whole life. Dizzy & Fay’s debut single I Wish That You Were Here drops November 20 2020, with a 12 song LP album shortly behind, arriving in 2021.

Baby, this has just begun…

Please note: All shows are currently ONLINE.  When the Province opens up and we are permitted to have gatherings in restaurants this show will take place at Club 55.
