The Sportin’ Lifers bring to life the era when names like Johnny Otis, Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Etta James, and Slim Gaillard were heard up and down the West Coast, while Paul Gayten, Professor Longhair, and scores of others held forth in The Crescent City. Rhythm, jive, swing, reefer tunes, jump blues, and boogie woogie are all here. Featuring dynamic vocalist Erin Wallace, the Sportin’ Lifers delight dancers and music lovers alike with Steve “Thousand Dollar” Cleveland on piano, Whit Draper on guitar, Fred Ingram on drums, and Don Campbell on upright bass.
