The Elizabeth (5:15pm)
The Elizabeth is a band compromised of wives Liz and Sarah who are proud moms, artists, musicians and activists. The band’s name comes from the fun fact they both share the middle name Elizabeth. With Liz on guitar and lead vocals, and Sarah on piano and vocals they interweave a combination of original tunes and covers that are lively and fun, but meant to deliver emotion, important messages, and stories of the world around us. The Elizabeth is a proud queer couple that hope to have you dancing and having fun, but also leave you thinking about how we can have a better future for our planet and the people and creatures in it.
