When they talk about "the elephant in the room," has there ever actually been an elephant in the room? If the room is the Lilypad, then the existence of an elephant will elicit eclectic enhancement of entertainment from vocalist Melissa Kassel and pianist/saxophonist Tom Zicarelli extended by energized elegant emissaries: Alan Chase on saxophones, basist Bruno Raberg, and drummer Nat Mugavero.

If your view isn't blocked by a mammoth you sill see first hand how music is created. This is the part everyone knows but nobody wants to talk about – you too will be creating the music. Singing, improvisation, conversation, imagination.

Writing about their April show at the Lilypad, Stu Vandermark of Boston Social Scene said, "Melissa [is] at the top of her game, pushing herself and band mates to reach higher, farther… It just keeps growing and surprising."
