Whether it's their powerful messages, original eclectic funky-circus tunes, or vibrant energy, The Midnight Dip is a band that's rewriting the rules of music. Led by the magnetic Liz Kat, whose voice is pure soul, they're a five-piece powerhouse from Sacramento, California, pushing boundaries and spreading positivity through their funky, swing-infused sound. Though most of the members have a jazz background, the band’s music is unpredictable, with an eclectic blend of swing, funk and polka. The Midnight Dip is inspired by an eclectic blend of music such as Stevie Wonder, Fiona Apple, and Tom Waits. Recognized by Capital Public Radio, their music is like "something out of a Danny Elfman coloring book." Their new music video 'Mad' is a bold anthem against conformity and a celebration of the power of bodily autonomy.

about Liz kat


Welcome to Liz Kat's heart-space. True strength comes from within, like a constant burning furnace that fuels the body and its limbs. Liz Kat, soultress and lead prowess for The Midnight Dip, started the band with a fiery passion and a cacophony of emotions: anger, sadness, love and everything in between. She wanted to inspire the world and counter the lack of female representation in the local music scene. She started playing piano when she was seven years old and only sang when she was alone. Her shyness hindered her from expressing herself musically up until her late teenage years, when she decided to try playing music with other people. She hopes to inspire others to reclaim their power and share their stories as well.
