We here at Lizard Lounge are so excited to welcome back David Wax Museum!

The roots of David Wax Museum stretch back over a decade, and all the way from New England to Mexico.  As a student at Harvard, Wax began traveling south of the border to study and immerse himself in the country’s traditional music and culture.  Back in Boston, he met fiddler/singer Suz Slezak, whose love of traditional American and Irish folk music fused with Wax’s Mexo-Americana into a singular, energetic blend that captivated audiences and critics alike.  Their 2010 breakout performance at the Newport Folk Festival made them the most talked-about band of the weekend, with Bob Boilen of NPR Music hailing them as “pure, irresistible joy.”
