DiTrani Brothers and Hot Damn Scandal

Jazz, Folk

The DiTrani Brothers (American jazz, ragtime, and Eastern European folk music) - is a four-piece acoustic ensemble drawing influence primarily from early French and American jazz, ragtime, and Eastern European folk music. Hot Damn Scandal finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called ‘Tipsy American Gypsy Blues’, Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and and puts thunder in your molasses.
