PRESS RELEASE: SHOW
NOTE: Feel free to use this press release if you are promoting a concert by Jack and Kitty.
Emmy Award winning “Organic Vaudeville and Jug Band Folk” duo Jack and Kitty will be performing a concert on __________ (date) at __________ (venue) in __________ (city/state).
The husband and wife duo has been described by one reviewer as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé”.
We call our style, ‘organic vaudeville folk’,” explains Kitty. “It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes.”
Jack adds, “it’s laid-back music steeped in tradition but with modern pop influences.”
The group cites influences as far ranging as 1920s and 30s dixieland jazz and jug band ragtime to modern hip-hop and R&B. That rich musical stew forms the blend of Jack and Kitty’s Emmy Award winning artistic approach. Indeed, it would seem that music is in their blood.
Kitty’s uncle is Bunny Wailer – of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame. She grew up in rural Scotts Pass, Jamaica listening to a healthy blend of reggae, rap and R&B.
At a young age Jack discovered his vaudevillian great grandfather’s phonograph record collection and spent his childhood listening to crooners like Bing Crosby, Al Jolson and Rudy Vallee. As fate would have it, oddball ukulele legend Tiny Tim moved in next door to the Norton household and somehow became Jack’s babysitter.
“Seriously, Mr. Tip Toe Through The Tulips was my baby sitter,” Jack laughs.
Jack and Kitty have performed in nineteen countries, toured for the US Pentagon, sang at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and regularly perform at Nashville’s legendary songwriting haven the Bluebird Cafe.
