Levitt AMP Cumberland Music Series Presents The Lao Tizer Band

Thursday, July 11 • 7:00PM • Free

The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to present the sixth show of the 2024 Levitt AMP Cumberland Music Series featuring Los-Angeles-based jazz ensemble, The Lao Tizer Band!

The Lao Tizer Band, recently nominated as ”Jazz Group of the Year”, will make their debut in support of their forthcoming 2024 album and video release, “Amplify.” The new release is a major evolution for the group and includes four new original vocals and four new original instrumentals with flavors of jazz, R&B, funk & world music.
Attendees of the 2023 Levitt program may recall members of the group included in the performance of Special EFX with Chieli Minucci. This configuration includes Lao Tizer, “Best New Jazz Artist” nominee; vocalist and former American Idol finalist, Elliott Yamin, drum phenom Tony Austin and Senegalese bassist and producer, Cheikh N’Doye. The group takes listeners on a high-energy musical ride through a variety of styles and flavors featuring an all-star cast of musicians.

All Levitt AMP programs are free to the public. In 2024, we will also have a Kids Zone area as well as beer and wine sales onsite. Food partners will be announced as they become available.

The Levitt AMP Cumberland Music Series is supported in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, which exists to strengthen the social fabric of America. It partners with communities to activate underused outdoor spaces, creating welcoming, inclusive destinations where the power of free, live music brings people together and invigorates community life.
