The Lemon Drops
Nashville JAZZ Band | 4 Band Members
The Lemon Drops play the popular songs of a bygone jazz era, from Doris Day to Ella Fitzgerald, Norah Jones to Nat King Cole. With over 10 years experience performing in Nashville, bandleader Abigail Flowers is an incredible performer with a voice just as comfortable with honeyed American Songbook ballads, swinging jazz classics or up tempo Latin favorites.
Featuring Nashville’s top young jazz players, The Lemon Drops can perform as a duo, trio, quartet or larger group - adding trumpet or saxophone to suit your musical taste and event.
Abigail is a Lanikai endorsed ukulele player and the duo version of the group offers the relaxed, swinging combination of voice, ukulele and upright bass, while the larger groups add the energy and fire of a swinging piano, bass and drums rhythm section.
The Lemon Drops are highly experienced performers and know how to read the crowd to perfectly complement your celebration. Melt into your evening with songs like Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable and Elvis Presley’s Are You Lonesome Tonight, or try your hand at the jitterbug as the band kicks it up a notch with swingers like Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon or Sarah Vaughan’s All Of Me.
With years of experience performing at weddings, the band knows how to blend into the background creating a gorgeous ambience for your night, step out into the spotlight to entertain your guests with a world-class jazz performance, or do a little of each as the night progresses.
The Lemon Drops feature impeccable jazz singer Abigail Flowers and a who’s who of Nashville jazz talent. Their set-list is filled with all the classic jazz songs you know and love, from Louis Armstrong’s What A Wonderful World to Ella Fitzgerald’s How High The Moon, Nat King Cole’s Route 66 to Norah Jones’ The Nearness Of You. Live jazz adds a luxurious feel to an evening, and The Lemon Drops’ music already has a special place in people’s hearts. Let the band whisk you back in time to the roaring 20s while you sip a cocktail and enjoy the performance, or socialise with your guests while The Lemon Drops create the perfect background ambience.
