Izzy & The Catastrophics
August 3, 2013
Stitching together rock n’ roll, swing, surf, honky-tonk, and bebop, Izzy and the Catastrophics are a profoundly exciting and challenging group. Often compared to rockabilly greats of the past, Izzy and his boys are carrying the tradition into the 21stcentury with flair and frenzy.
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.
Amassing talented players from all over the world, the band has had many lineup changes. With each passing member, the band and the players have expanded and deepened their passion for playing music.
The one constant has always been Izzy Zaidman, veteran guitarist of Wayne "The Train” Hancock’s band. Fronting the group with swagger and zest, his masterful guitar playing is surpassed only by his witty songwriting and razor-sharp stage banter.
