Lisa & the Damfino Players

Lisa and Cliff have been partners in all sorts of projects for the last 15 years. They were founding members of the Swing band SwingThing Jazz from the East Bay in CA. This new project allows for a more intimate and diverse feel. Lisa and Cliff go for everything from early Jazz, Blues to mid Bop. Think Ukulele Ike with a sweet late '30's jazz guitar feel. Lisa loves to play Uke and sing her little heart out from '20's Novelty tunes to 50's heart-wrenching ballads. Cliff's beautiful and creative guitar playing keeps your ears tuned to his excellent technique and silly quotes. We love dancers so even when it's just the two of us, we try to make it so you can't stop movin' your feet. We are periodically joined by guest musicians sitting in filling out the group to a sextet.
