The Jitterbug Vipers are a quartet that hail from Austin, Texas and take inspiration from the likes of Cab Calloway, Count Basie and Jerry Garcia. Their music, whilst rooted in the 1930s/40’s, is a heady cocktail of energy and jive that they call ‘Viper Jazz’. “We don’t think of ourselves as a jazz band,” says bassist Francie Meaux Jeaux. “We think of ourselves as a 1930s rock band. We just wail.”
You can get a flavour of their lovely sound by streaming their new album ‘Phoebe’s Dream‘ below along with their free single ‘Stuff It’.
