Vaudeville to Vallarta – Zoë Lewis ‘A Band in a Body’

Zoë Lewis, known to many as ‘a band in a body’, brings her unique, eclectic musical style and talent to The Palm in ‘Vaudeville to Vallarta’,
beginning Wednesday, March 2 at 9:30 p.m.

Zoë Lewis is a band in a body! She plays jazz, jump jive, Latin grooves, swing, international folk, and funk originals on anything from the piano to the spoons! Troubadour, vaudevillian, storyteller, adventurer, singer-songwriter, Zoë demonstrates all of her talents in her highly anticipated show now playing at The Palm.
Zoë started studying music (piano) in England at the age of seven in her little village on the south coast at Rottingdean. She began performing professionally with London Latin jazz ten-piece band Avanti in 1986. The band toured the UK and cut a record. She went solo in 1988, performed piano/vocal jazz standards in London pubs and later worked in South America and in the Caribbean.
In 1990, Zoë arrived in the United States and began performing originals on guitar, piano, harmonica, ukulele, penny whistle, accordion, and human trumpet. Since then, she’s toured extensively, performing at numerous folk clubs, coffee houses, colleges, music festivals and PRIDE marches.
Zoë has taught songwriting workshops at festivals and in schools. Her workshop “Music in our Pockets” encourages people to redefine their meaning of music; there’s music on the streets, on our bodies, in nature, even in our pockets if only we open up our ears. Loose change, or a set of keys can be used to make wonderful noise.
“She’s got it all – a masterful combination of song, performance and artistry, with a contagiously positive attitude and free spirit. Probably the most charismatic performance I’ve ever seen.” – ACCESSLINE, IA
A gifted singer and musician, she is as amazing to watch as she is to listen to. Zoë has traveled and performed around the globe in over 70 countries, picking up world-beat grooves and stories along the way; jumping box cars, riding on freight boats and has even played music with an elephant orchestra in Thailand.
Zoë has performed with an array of incredible musicians including Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Bruce Cockburn), Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie), Paul Piercy (Dixie Chicks), Freebo (Bonnie Raitt), Sara Lee (B52s) and has toured with Judy Collins, Nanci Griffith, Pat Benatar and The Indigo Girls.
She now resides in Provincetown on Cape Cod, MA, where she performs every summer. Her music is upbeat, amusing and perfect for young and old alike. In 2013, she was voted Provincetown Woman of the Year.
Vaudeville to Vallarta will mark Zoë’s Puerto Vallarta, Mexico debut and she’s already making a great first impression, after recently previewing her show at The Palm She will play March 2 – 22. Please see the link below for more information and online tickets.
