Pink Lady & The Tramps
Pink Lady & The Tramps are very closely tied to that sweet Portland jazz gang, Pink Lady & John Bennett Jazz Band. Front woman Pink Lady, who is a sassy mix of flapper, vamp and sultry siren, sings the songs of the Prohibition Era in this combo of handsome gents which includes vintage arch top guitarist Steve Boden, Wayne Travillion on double brass duty with Trombone & Cornet, Will Amend on Double Bass, Joe Haegele on Drums and Ralph Huntley on the keys. All together they have been playing that corruptive hot jazz for over 100 years! Yowza! So get ready to hit that dance floor and let yourself go!
