Lisa & Lori Brigantino to perform at Parkside Cupcakes

Singers, multi-instrumentalists and sisters Lisa and Lori Brigantino will be performing a two set concert of Lisa’s original songs with some select covers at Parkside Cupcakes in Alden, NY on Friday, March 15th.  The show starts at 7:30pm and doors open at 7pm.  Parkside Cupcakes is a charming, cozy venue with delicious desserts and treats available.

Lisa’s original songs span a variety of genres including Folk, Old-Time, Americana, Pop, Country and more.  Her songs are upbeat, joyful, inspirational, thoughtful and introspective and there’s a fun, on-stage chemistry between the sisters, as well as tight sibling vocal harmonies.  The Brigantino sisters are well-known for their musicianship – often juggling a number of different instruments including guitars, banjo, accordion, ukulele and more. The sisters are no strangers to Western New York, having both attended college at SUNY Fredonia.

Lisa’s latest album  I’ll Waltz Before I Goreleased last October, is an eclectic collection of Lisa’s original songs.  The Daily Country says “Throughout the thirteen tracks, Lisa seamlessly blends genres from Folk to Americana, Country, Rock, and Old-Time, even incorporating some Gypsy-Jazz for good measure.”  Among other accolades, Lisa was a finalist position in the Best Female Artist category of the International Acoustic Music Awards as well as The First Annual Songs For Social Change Contest for her song “Used To Be A House.” Most recently, she received 3rd place for her song “Every Day’s A Journey” in the WomenArts Swan Day Song Contest. Lisa is a former original member of Lez Zeppelin, the world’s first all girl Led Zeppelin tribute band and toured internationally with the band for a number of years playing bass, mandolin and keyboards.  She left the band in 2009 to focus on her original music.

Lori Brigantino is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who has performed with Lisa at a number of regional clubs, coffeehouses, house concerts and festivals including The New Jersey Folk Festival, The Rockland-Bergen Music Festival, Maplewoodstock, The Ladybug Music Festival, The Black Potatoe Festival and others.  She can be heard singing and playing several instruments on “I’ll Waltz Before I Go” and her vocals can be heard on Lisa’s previously releases “Wonder Wheel” and “A Brooklyn Night.” Lori is also a trained actor with Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway, TV & film credits. Lisa and Lori also have an original, wacky musical-comedy act called “The Vickie & Nickie Show.”
