Izzy and the Catastrophics are a profoundly exciting group. Often compared to rockabilly and Americana greats of the past, Izzy and his boys are carrying the tradition into the 21stcentury with flair and frenzy. With two new albums slated for early 2013 the group hits the road with press, promo and hotter than ever.
Rooted firmly in traditional American roots music with the chops to nail it and the grit to deliver it, Izzy and his boys are on a lifelong mission to heal the world's disenfranchised ears by exposing audiences to the glory of their own cultural lineage. Spiritually bound to professional principles yet prone to avant-garde interludes and playful stage banter, the band is rapidly building a subculture from every facet of society. Izzy's shows are likely to be filled with audiences of all ages. If there is a common thread connecting everyone who cares for live music, Izzy and the Catastrophics are it.
The band has toured constantly since 2008, playing over 250 shows per year in America and Europe. They have shared the stage with everyone from Snoop Dogg and Reverend Horton Heat in Orlando to the unmentionable punk bands of Anaheim. Their most recent album, Lucky Dragon Swing Buffet: Dinner Price, was largely recorded during a month long stint in New Orleans, with guest appearances by some of the hottest young players on the emergent Traditional Jazz scene. During the filming of their debut music video for Mambo on Your Grave, the group rode a full-sized Mardi-Gras float illegally through the mausoleum-laden cemeteries of New Orleans.
