Meschiya Lake & The Dizzy Birds

Multi-time winner of “Best Female Vocalist” and “Best Traditional Jazz Artist” at OffBeat Magazine's "Best of the Beat" Awards, Meschiya Lake is one of the finest singers in New Orleans. A force of nature, Meschiya Lake was raised in South Dakota and first discovered New Orleans while touring with a circus. She moved there in 2007 and has since enjoyed a rapidly growing recognition of her talent as entertainer and singer. Meschiya will be at JazzAscona with The Dizzy Birds, a traditional jazz band, composed of six young Berlin-based musicians who share the passion for New Orleans jazz. The band has gained the respect of the Berlin swing community and is a favorite in the scene. Winner of various European contests, The Dizzy Birds also work with some of the Crescent City’s best artists, among them Meschiya Lake, with whom they recorded their latest album, Because We Can. Hot, entertaining and danceable: don’t miss them!
