Miss Jubilee and the Yas Yas Boys
July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10 – $15
Based in St. Louis, MO, Miss Jubilee and the YAS YAS Boys play an energetic blend of low-down blues, hokum, and hot jazz from the 1920s and 30s. Their one-of-kind repertoire draws heavily from the female blues singers who helped define the genre. From Bessie Smith and Victoria Spivey, to the more obscure Merline Johnson and Lil’ Johnson, Miss Jubilee revives this music with a joy and effortless authenticity. Led by the powerhouse vocalist Valerie Kirchhoff, the band features barrelhouse pianist Ethan Leinwand, bassist Richard Tralles, a gutbucket horn section of Kenneth Cebrian (trumpet) and Ryan Calloway (clarinet), and Ryan Koenig on washboard.
