BETTY is the original pop-rock band fronted by Alyson Palmer and sisters Elizabeth and Amy Ziff. The band's defiant attitude and signature sound of tight harmonies, fun melodies and clever lyrics layered over strong grooves make their devoted cult grow steadily larger. Based in New York City, BETTY performs wild, memorable and boundary-pushing live shows all over the world. Fierce Elizabeth (vocals, guitar), funky Alyson (vocals, bass) and funny Amy (vocals, cello) are the songwriters and arrangers. On occasion, the trio augment their sound with rich guitar from Tony Salvatore and drums by Mino Gori.
Joining BETTY this month will be veteran journalist and media maven Carol Jenkins. A former head of the Women's Media Center and WNBC news anchor, Ms. Jenkins is co-author of the book Black Titan: A.G. Gaston and the Making of a Black American Millionaire and has been a vocal activist for human rights and equality for decades.
