Elana Zabari originally hails from Queens in New York. She plays eclectic covers and originals filled with sincerity and emotion throughout the Tri-State area and beyond. Her soulful voice can be found at live venues, various beach clubs, private and corporate functions and also in the studio providing her vocals on various projects.
A late bloomer, Elana started her singing career as a late bloomer. Gaining confidence at karaoke bars and then finally answering a craigslist ad, she became lead singer of "Da Scrubz", which was later renamed "Big Sis & the Boom Bahs. They played throughout the Westchester/Fairfield County area including charitable events, such as Kids in Crisis at the Alive at Five stage in Stamford, CT. In 2012, Elana joined the cover band Ruby and The Diamond Kings and performed through CT, most notably for the Ct Trees of Honor. Since that time, she has freelanced with a number of bands most notably with Tyrone Shoelaces where she did backing vocals and is recorded on two of their albums. She's been honored to play at the Milford Oyster Festival and as featured act the Milford Arts Council.
Elana has performed at clubs and events across NJ, NY, MA and RI in addition to CT. Her powerful voice and ability to bridge genres enables her to sing bluesy songs like Susan Tedeschi’s "Midnight in Harlem" to raw rock such as Janis Joplin’s classic, “Me and Bobby McGhee” to touching ballads like Lady Gaga’s “Always Remember Us This Way” and Neil Young's "Harvest Moon". Deciding to finally learn to play guitar in 2015, Elana now writes and plays eclectic covers and her original music at various venues.
