Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints

Jazz

Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints is a project formed out of the both the love of jazz from 30s and 40s and country and rock n' roll from the golden era of the 50s and 60s. With upright bassist Birch Pereira and his Chet Baker inspired vocals at the center, the group features some of Seattle's best musicians in a variety of instrumentations as duo and trios. 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.
