DUCHESS DI and the DISTRACTIONS  

Duchess and the Distractions capture

a bygone era with their hip blend of Risqué blues, jump and swing,

Bringing the fabulous 40's back.

 

Fans of American roots music like Swing, rockabilly and early rock and roll have been thrilled to discover this new band. Their repertoire from the 40's and 50's include cover by artists such as Ruth Brown, Dinah Washington, Louis Jordan, and Louis Prima; these guys are “Dillinger”! Featured at the Peekskill Jazz and Blues 2008 & 2009 to crowds of 3000 plus.
