Yamit and The Vinyl Blvd is the Jazz ensemble brainchild of vocalist and violinist Yamit Lemoine. Elegant, classy and glamorous, the band has a vintage sound, look, and feel that transports audiences back in time. Known for creating a lush ambience that is both sophisticated and fun, the band’s musical focus is Jazz from the 1920’s – 1960’s Golden Era, with a repertoire consisting of uptempo Swing tunes, Bossa Novas, New Orleans Jazz, Gypsy Jazz and some beautiful Classic Ballads. While singing mostly Great American Songbook Jazz standards, Yamit also tastefully includes a handful of era-specific tunes in Spanish, French and Italian into the performance.
Established as the crème-de-la-crème of Jazz bands in Miami, the ensemble regularly performs within Miami’s thriving live music scene and showcases an impressive roster of Miami’s top A-list jazz musicians.
