Cosmo Alleycats

If you pass a San Francisco bar on a Friday night with a great long line of expectant patrons out front, chances are they’re all waiting to be propelled into the sonic time warp of a Cosmo Alleycats performance inside.

Cosmo Alleycats have been a favorite of the San Francisco music scene since the band’s 2010 beginning, bringing to the stage a potent mix of swing and vintage dance music with a dynamic, soulful delivery. Led by vocalist Emily Day (“one of the major singers in her field” – Scott Yanow), Cosmo Alleycats draws from several decades of exhilarating American music, along with inspired originals, to deliver a fun and engaging performance.

With thirteen years' experience performing together, Cosmo Alleycats is a well-oiled machine. But however polished their performance may be, it’s their sense of playfulness that holds the door open for the unexpected. This dynamic is evident in their 2022 album, Old Sweet Songs, a collection of Tin Pan Alley and American Songbook favorites accompanied by their original compositions, inspired by bygone styles of songwriting.

Cosmo Alleycats has performed at notable venues and festivals such as Blue Note Napa, Piedmont Piano Company, Ashkenaz, The Sound Room, House of Blues New Orleans, Maison Frenchman, Dreamforce, SeaWorld San Diego, Fillmore Jazz Festival, Reno's Hot August Nights, and the Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival. You can catch the band playing regularly at Local Edition, Mr. Tipple's, and Club Deluxe in San Francisco, and you've likely seen them at your cousin's wedding or your company's Holiday Party.
