Lisa has spent 15 years professionally performing both on and off Broadway as a singer-dancer as well as sharing the theatrical stage productions at Radio City Music hall along with the NYC Rockettes. Lisa has been seen in many national TV commercials in addition to modeling for “Maidenform” lingerie and “Members Only” sportswear. Her career continued to expand when she completed a MS degree in dance-exercise kinesiology and for 9 years was the creator and featured host in her own TV exercise show and video series sponsored by NIKE. Today Lisa continues to educate herself and others through her own personal training company.
With her reputation as a budding stage personality under her belt, Lisa has taken the next step in her career recently performing at the historic Apollo theatre in NYC as well as BB Kings, and for the past three years has starred in her own one woman production called “Songbird” which played at both the Algonquin and Count Basie Theatre. At the historic Strand theatre, Lisa starred in “The soul sessions” and performed in “Broadway and beyond” both to standing ovations.
Coming up, Lisa is looking forward to performing with Franke Previte and the Ashville symphony orchestra in North Carolina doing a tribute to the music of Paul Mccartney.
Lisa has shared the stage with some of the world’s finest entertainers and musicians; notables include: Mary Wilson (the Supremes), LuLu (To Sir with Love), Gary US Bonds, South Side Johnny, Danny Aiello, Bobby Bandiera (Bon Jovi), Bob Burger ( Glenn Burtnik), Marc Ribler (everybody who’s anybody), Franke Previte and many more.
Recently with the tribute craze taking over, Lisa has joined forces with Bob Burger in his tribute to “Fleetwood Mac” and added her own creativity along with Bob to create a tribute to “Three Dog Night” in addition to her very own big band creation called “The Disco Connection” which has been playing to sold out shows everywhere. Lisa has just of late added her "Best of Bonnie Raitt" tribute evening which sold out on it's debut night.
