Shout Sister Shout brings classic jazz tunes from the golden age of radio

Sit back…close your eyes…and see how long it takes to transport back to the era that brought us such jazz greats as Porter, Fitzgerald, Holiday, Cole, and Vaughn.  On Saturday, May 17, 7:30 p.m., at the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake, Shout Sister Shout, a show performed by the folk foursome Steppin’ In It, accompanied by singer-songwriter, Rachael Davis, will pay tribute to the smoky, sophisticated sound of that era.  

Sample a bit of the unique 30’s and 40’s jazz style ahead of time by visiting our website at www.thrasheroperahouse.com.  Click on the Shout Sister Shout event, then on their MySpace page and listen to what the classic jazz tunes from the golden age, interpreted by today’s young musicians playing on vintage instruments, sounds like!   

 

Although both are known nationally for their folk repertoire, Shout Sister Shout stretches them in the realm of old-time American Jazz with torch swing numbers alongside bluesy ballads. Steppin’ In It, known for their revival of old-time music, provide the perfect backdrop for Rachael Davis who posses a voice that demands your attention.
