I'm so excited to see the Citizens Bank Annual Pops by the Sea pre-show featuring Ian James Sinnett Lee, Michael A Gabriel, Alex Becrelis, Cape Cod African Danc...e and Drum, and Rayssa Ribeiro and Clã Da Bossa Nova this Sunday! Who wants to join me on the lawn?! It's only $20 (or you can upgrade to festival seating or a VIP table - up to you). It's going to be an incredible day of local music!
Tripping Lily would like to make a few announcements regarding the format and the future of the band. Monica Rizzio has parted from Tripping Lily to focus on her solo work and non profit organization "Vine Grass." For more information you can visit, www.MonicaRizzio.com. Monica is doing some great work! We are very excited for her.
For the time being, Tripping Lily will be carried on by Demetrius and Alex. There will be a new member shortly and be ce...rtain that we will keep you up to date on the new bandmate and upcoming shows. We are very eager to be back on the road and share our music! We want to thank you for your continued support, and we are very excited to share this new chapter of Tripping Lily with you all!

A letter from Tripping Lily founding member Monica Rizzio
I wanted to touch base with all of our friends and fans to announce that I am leaving the band in pursuit of a solo career. I will be recording an album with my new band, Old King's Highway and extensively touring the US in 2014. Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to collaborate with other musicians and explore other genres and styles of music. Old King's Highway is the product of this exploration. ...I will also continue to record and perform my Jazzy side under Monica Rizzio.
The past 10 years have been filled with so many magical, musical experiences and have shaped me into the musician that I am today. The decision to leave Tripping Lily was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, as we have been like family for most of my musical life. The only thing I want to do is be on stage and perform music around the country and world, thus my decision to move on.
I wanted to express how grateful I am for allowing me to live my life long dream and be on stage. I will always cherish the beauty of the music I made with Tripping Lily, the relationships with Laird, Alex, and Demetrius, and mostly our loyal fan base.
I am excited to begin this next chapter and hit the road. Hope to see you out there!!!
I have a Kalamazoo KG-11 that I'm selling. See the ad here. Message me if you have any questions...
Monica Rizzio will be a feature artist for this concert! You won't wanna miss it.
