The Gin Joints

Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints is a project that dips into the music from the golden era of jazz, country and rock n' roll from the 30s through the early 60s. With upright bassist Birch Pereira and his classic crooner inspired vocals at the center, the group features some of Seattle's best musicians in a variety of instrumentations as the repertoire moves from romantic ballads to jumping swing and two steps, drawing from the repertoire of Hoagy Carmichael, Bing Crosby, Chet Baker and Fats Waller to Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Little Walter and Elvis.
