Alex Pangman

Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Benny Goodman, the vibrant young vocalist is proud to be known as Canada's Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, Pangman possesses breathes new life into the music of the classic jazz era.
A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, the prodigiously gifted Toronto scenemaker has built a loyal fanbase through her critically acclaimed work with her stacked Alleycats at upscale nightclubs and concert halls across Canada including three showcases at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Massey Hall (where she opened for Willie Nelson at Toronto Jazzfest), a guest appearance at Koerner Hall with John Pizzarelli, and a record with his legendary father, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli.
Her releases, the JUNO nominated “New” (2014), "Have a Little fun"(2013) and "33"(2011) on Montreal's Justin Time Records are modeled on 1930s small group swing ensembles and include her tight but swinging band John Macleod (cornet), Peter Hill (piano), Chris Banks (bass), and Glenn Anderson (drums).
