LISA KOCH RETURNS TO ASHLAND!
On Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 PM, Seattle singer/comedian Lisa Koch returns to her hometown for a night of quirky songs, nutty nuns, and lots of laughs. Koch grew up in Ashland and started her musical career in the Rogue Valley with brother David, singing at the Mark Antony Hotel and the Hungry Woodsman.
Lisa later joined rock band In Flight, and toured with local singer Lisa Spencer. She was a regular performer at popular Ashland club Jazmin’s. She also debuted two of her one-woman shows at Oregon Cabaret Theatre. Picture Tina Fey meets Randy Rainbow with Joan Jett guitar chops… and you’ve got Seattle’s Lisa Koch. Twisted songs, demented nuns, and sing alongs galore – Lisa brings the funny, with velvet pipes, social satire and razor-sharp parody. With 5 solo recordings, she is an alumnus of loony sketch comedy duo, Dos Fallopia (My Breasts are Out of Control, Ham for the Holidays), and cult quartet Venus Envy (I’ll Be A Homo for Xmas). Koch (pronounced “Coke”) has shared the stage with Steve Martin, Janis Ian, Lily Tomlin, The Indigo Girls, Kate Clinton, and more. Lisa has co-written such warped shows as “The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You,” “Two’s Company, I’m a Crowd,” and “Ham for the Holidays: The Hamchurian Candidate.” Koch has been featured on Olivia and LOGO, is the composer of Off-Broadway musical “27, Rue de Fleurus”, and is proud to report that one of her songs has actually been sampled by Jay-Z. Lisa brings to the stage her guitar, her clever songs, and her musings on being a woman… from middle age to mammograms to singing vulvas. Tickets are $20 advance, $15 student-senior (students show ID, seniors 62+). Tickets are available online at https://heylisak.ticketspice.com/lisa-koch-in-concert, and can also be purchased locally at The Music Coop, 268 E. Main St., Ashland. The show will also be livestreamed, tickets sold online only.
