We play Swing music, Blues, and Vaudevillian originals, as well as traditional Parisian and American jazz. Our sound is inspired by the 1930's era Jazz Manouche of Django Reinhardt, the vocal stylings of Marlene Dietricht and Ella Fitzgerald, storytellers like Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. We tip our hats to the bold and the brazen, the ones who embody joie de vivre, the cabaret dwellers in the shadowy nightlife of a century ago.
