Sasha Masakowski was born into a family of musicians in New Orleans and has been a leading voice on the city’s music scene since 2009, when she was awarded “Best Emerging Artist” at both the OffBEAT Best of The Beat Awards and the Big Easy Awards.  An exciting vocalist whose repertoire spans from the early 1920s to present day, Sasha leads three bands of her own that range from traditional New Orleans Jazz to contemporary Jazz and world music, to experimental electronic art-rock.  Vanity Fair Magazine listed Sasha as one of the top jazz musicians in the world and the December 2015 issue of Downbeat Magazine named Sasha among the most innovative musicians coming out of New Orleans.  Her concert with the Sidewalk Strutters will draw mostly from Traditional Jazz with contemporary influences.
