Lapis Luna brings you the captivating music of 1930s, 40s & 50s jazz with a classic glittering sound. Their specialty is playing timeless melodies the way they were meant to be heard: vibrant, fun, romantic & cool.

A dynamic band of prominent NYC jazz musicians, Lapis Luna has set themselves apart with their authentic presentation of vintage jazz standards, enchanting ballads, and obscure swing era gems. Their style also embraces hot jazz, early blues, big band, bebop & retro cha-cha, bossa, and rumba.

Led by jazz chanteuse Shawn Aileen Clark, Lapis Luna transports you and your guests to a long-gone era of genuine romance and spirited swing. The sparkling lounge trio with guitar, upright bass and vocals will truly delight. Add drums and sax for an ultra hip quartet or quintet, and the swingin’ 6 piece ‘little big band’ will keep your toes tapping.

Performance attire also sets the mood with a fabulously chic cocktail dress, dapper suits, one-of-a-kind instruments and a vintage microphone.

Lapis Luna performs at jazz venues, festivals, and concerts throughout NYC and the tri-state. They've provided music for hundreds of parties, public and private, intimate and grand, at places such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Ellis Island, the Carlyle, 21, Central Park Boathouse, Grand Central Station, Jazz at Lincoln Center, New York Botanical Gardens, as well as restaurants, lounges, lofts, vineyards, gardens, estates & private homes. They have entertained celebrities, luminaries & dignitaries at weddings, private soirees, benefits & galas.
