Fun Fact: Until the age of 5 I was convinced that I was Batman. Therefore, every year when Halloween came around instead of leaving on the mask and cape I wore 24/7, I would remove them. This was my way of joining in the fun of 'dressing up' once a year.

Fun fact: I once did a musical residency at the same hotel/jazz bar in Japan where “Lost In Translation” was filmed - ask me about it!

Our Story

It was 2013 and Kat was performing with a number of bands around town at private events and festivals. While she was busy, she knew she wanted to level up her quality of work and start creating high quality opportunities for herself and her fellow musicians. Enter: George Chenery. Kat and George were connected through a mutual professor at Humber College where they both attended the Bachelor of Music (Jazz Performance) program. They immediately hit it off and George quickly brought in Ewen and Louis to complete the band. The group has been together ever since.

In 2017, Lady Be Good Productions launched a spin-off band called Hey Love, featuring Laurel Tubman on vocals. In 2019 Laurel joined the Lady Be Good roster as an alternate vocalist during Kat’s maternity leave. Laurel remains with the team to this day as a beloved additional vocalist for Lady Be Good while also fronting all of Hey Love’s performances.
