Crissy Lee Orchestra – all-female band performing a tribute to Ivy Benson

A professional drummer since her mid-teens, Crissy Lee has performed with jazz and popular music household names including Dinah Washington, Fats Domino, Tom Jones, Lulu and Eartha Kitt. Her band The Beat Chics supported The Beatles on tour.

Crissy toured the world with all-female Ivy Benson Dance Band. Leeds-born Ivy Benson was as well-known in the 1940s as Glenn Miller and Dame Vera Lynn and her band was one of the BBC’s resident dance bands.

Crissy has broadcast extensively on TV and Radio, including more recently leading The Skinnerettes, the house band on the Frank Skinner Show.

Crissy’s own orchestra features the cream of UK female jazz musicians and vocalist Jacqui Hicks, playing classic big band numbers sure to make your toes tap and your hearts sing.
