Jazz Vocalists Liza Moran and Josh Baty
You will be enchanted by our wonderful jazz vocalists. Liza Moran has been reviewed as “a beautiful, tall, blonde bombshell who sounds exactly like Etta James….” Liza has been singing on TV and film since she was three years old. She has performed on stages all over the world for everyone from the Royalty of Monaco in Monte Carlo to the Hollywood elite at The Viper Room.
Josh Baty, our male vocalist is considered one of NJ’s most dynamic, with a talent for emulating his favorite artists. Josh has been compared to the late Las Vegas showman, Danny Gans, because of his spot-on renditions of songs by Frank Sinatra, Elton John, Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Michael Buble, Sting, Bruce Springsteen, and Johnny Cash to name a few. Josh and Liza deliver a show that is pure entertainment.
Our musicians’ experience is simply immense. Norm Hathaway (leader and alto sax) has performed with Royal Canadian Navy Bands, Jack Benny, Jimmy Durante, Smilin’ Jack Smith, Leo Romanelli and Moxie Whitney Orchestras, to name a few. Vince Corozine (lead alto sax) has composed and arranged for the Jazz Knights of West Point, as well as the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade, and ABC-Disney TV and studied musical composition with Jimmy Giuffre.
The veteran musicians of the 19-piece Norm Hathaway Big Band will guarantee you a memorable evening of great music! If you have never experienced the energy, excitement and glamour of a true 1940s era Big Band, this is your chance to see one of New York’s best!
