The Grange presents: Alisa Amador
November 5, 2022

2022 National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk Contest winner! Alisa Amador in concert with her full band!

It was in green rooms, living room rehearsals, and cramped mini vans that Alisa Amador received her first musical education, singing backup vocals since the age of five for her parents’ Latin band, Sol y Canto. Her music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. With a sound described by Vance Gilbert as, “Shawn Colvin meets Joni Mitchell has lunch with Amy Winehouse meets Suzanne Vega and Diana Krall,” and NPR calls, “a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams,” her soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms, are likely to make you cry, laugh and dance all within one set.

Alisa will be playing this show with her full band. Come see Alisa performing solo with her hollow body electric guitar, or harmonizing originals and jazz covers with Noah Harrington singing and playing upright bass, or turning up the volume and syncopation with the help of Jacob Thompson on drums and vocals. It will be one unforgettable night.

Advance tickets: $17 / under 18, $5.

Tickets at the door: $20
