ABOUT THE BAND
The Cosmo Alleycats is a San Francisco-based vintage dance band that brings to the stage a potent mix of vintage dance music with a dynamic, soulful delivery. The band draws from several decades of exhilarating American music - from the famous to obscure - to deliver a fun and engaging performance. Their music spans the eras of New Orleans Jazz, Big Band, Classic R&B/Soul & Motown and their own ‘twist’ on Contemporary Music.
The Cosmo Alleycats performs regularly at Local Edition, Le Colonial, and Club Deluxe in San Francisco, and is a favorite to audiences and dancers throughout the SF Bay Area and Southern California. The band also appears at festival events such as the Fillmore Jazz Festival, SF Half Marathon, Reno's Hot August Nights, and the Russian River Jazz & Blues Festival. In the Summer of 2017, The Cosmo Alleycats had the privilege of performing in some of the most notable venues in New Orleans, including the House Of Blues, Maison on Frenchman, and of course, the distinguished street corner of Royal and Contí.
The Cosmo Alleycats is fronted by Emily Day, whose voice carries the history of American music. On stage, she combines her deep knowledge of jazz with her whiskey-tinged timber and vocal acrobatics — simultaneously wild and precise.
