Libertine Belles (PDX)

The Libertine Bells play old timey folk pop and “prohibition era swing” with three part harmonies. washboard percussion, ukuleles, banjos, washtub bass, winks and sexual innuendo. I love to hear a live band that creates a mood in the space like you’ve traveled back in time. Do you like Lambert, Hendricks and Ross? How about go father back and enjoy the Andrews Sisters’ Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy from Company B? You have got to hear their song ” Heartstring Tinkerin’ Tom” and their fun version of Minnie the Moocher.

If you enjoy music like this, and who doesn’t? Check out The Moonlighters, The Ditty Bops, Paris Combo, Manhattan Transfer  and the Pupini Sisters

 They may be silly sometimes, but they aren’t messing around they have serious chops and including a trumpet player is definitely classy.
