“This group is well worth it… awesome, upbeat music, it’s so good, it’s just got such sass about it”  - Chelsea Deeley, The New Thing, Eastside Radio 89.7 FM

Queen Porter Stomp uses their dirty swamp magic to shirk those blues. This is jazz where swing is the key you play, melody is your gypsy mistress, and signature is what you’re trying to avoid committing to paper until you have a shot of bootlegged whisky. They pack a punch with blazing horns that scream straight to your soul, a banjo that exorcises demons on the wrong side of midnight and a ukulele songstress that seduces like a warm summer’s day. Shine those shoes and undo that top button – if you’re just tapping those toes, then you’re in the wrong bar.

Crystal Barreca (ukulele, vocals) Louise Horwood (trumpet) Rose Foster (trombone) Alex Masso (drums) Shannon Haritos (double bass) Max Williams (banjo)
