Lavay Smith and Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers


  • Club Deluxe 1511 Haight Street San Francisco, CA, 94117 United States (map)

Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers are internationally recognized as one of the top bands in the world performing classic American jazz, swing, blues and R&B music from the mid-twentieth century.  Whether singing her own compositions or drawing on a large repertoire of classics, Lavay and her all-star 7-piece band bake up an instant recipe for dancing and good times.

"Lavay is wonderful! She and her band are a breath of fresh air. It is so unlikely and so exciting that a band would appear on the scene today that plays classic jazz and blues so well and so convincingly.” ---Johnny Otis, legendary R&B pioneer
