The Ditty Bops: “Get Up ‘n’ Go” (2006)


The Ditty Bops kick it old tyme, but with a thoroughly modern quirkiness.

The duo of Amanda Barrett and Abby DeWald borrow musically from half a dozen genres of music, most archaic to one degree or another, including jazz, folk, vaudeville, ragtime and western swing. But their adventurous, whimsical lyrics are atypical of any era.

The session musicians backing the girls are some of the hottest to be found (Pete Thomas on drums, for example) and the frenzied pace of the songs brings their dazzling talents to the fore. Fun stuff.
