AUDRA ZAMMIT - Lead & Backing Vocals, Percussion
Audra lives to sing and has been performing since the young age of three. She began on the stage in musical theater at the age of 6. A graduate of the American Musical Performance Center in NYC, some of her fondest performances were on stage in the national touring companies of Annie, The Fantasticks and Guys & Dolls.
While Audra began her musical career in the theater, her passion lies with creating live music that gets people moving and shaking. She has performed across Tennessee, Nebraska and Virginia with bands such as Rough Cut and Night Train before returning to her one and only home on the Jersey Shore. Audra grew up listening to the tunes of the 80’s and loves the nostalgic feeling of the hard-hitting female rock legends but does not discriminate where music is concerned. She enjoys all genres and loves to perform them all equally. Upon joining Dragonfly in 2021, Audra said, “I’m very excited to be a part of this talented group of performers! Rock and Roll!”
