Young Seattle Band Explores All Kinds of Swing

Aug 18, 2016

Blending classic swing tunes from jazz, country and early rock 'n' roll; bassist and singer Birch Pereira & The Gin Joints have found their own kind of cool. Live in our studios, the band performed four tunes from their varied songbook, including the music of Hoagy Carmichael, Fats Waller, Elvis Presley and Hank Williams.

A man of many talents, Birch has also found success around the Northwest in his modern soul/funk "livetronica" band Theoretics, but he says that group has little to no musical connection to this quartet. As we learned in this exclusive performance, The Gin Joints are a fascinating combo of sweetness and swing from young talents creating a fresh sound out of historic gems.
