White Ghost Shivers
Peeling the faces off the unsuspecting since 1999, we revel in string-band music from the 20s and 30s, mixing early jazz, hokum, vaudeville, ragtime, western swing and hillbilly, yet unleashing the gutterous underbelly of a pseudo-rock world gone wrong. YEE HAW!
Imagine a smorgasbord of Cab Calloway, circus sideshow, KISS, cabaret, Hee Haw and Robert Johnson served up at Andy Kaufman’s bat-mitzvah. A joyous mixture of the absurd and sublime, the five-piece ensemble gracefully blends a musical amalgam of Hokum Blues, Hillbilly Swing, Country and Hot Jazz.
Winners of over 10 Austin Music awards, the band’s forte has always been the ability to morph and suit itself to virtually any occasion, from the rowdiest of juke joints, to a 5 year old’s birthday party, whilst leaving everyone with a big smile!
