“If Chattanooga wasn't eclectic enough with its taste in music, The 9th Street Stompers will grab that part of you that's a little gypsy, a little hillbilly, and a little rock 'n' roll. Influenced by the great Django Reinhardt and other greats such as Stephane Grappelli and Oscar Aleman, the Stompers play with a musically impressive approach and do justice to a style of music that would baffle most.” - Scenic City Roots

The 9th Street Stompers are an outfit of well-dressed no-counts chopping on acoustic instruments and singing about life, death, love, and liquor. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, they cull up the musical scenery of an era when the lines between swing, gypsy jazz, blues, rockabilly, and tango weren’t nearly as hard and fast as the drinking and dancing. Steering clear of much of the novelty and kitsch associated with pre-war music, they choose to demonstrate the modern relevance of their chosen medium.

With
Skip Frontz Jr. furiously slapping the string bass and Lon Eldridge on blues finger-style resonator guitar, ukulele, and kazoo, they share vocal duties. Dalton Chapman is a Gypsy Swing virtuoso who diligently studied the great Django Reinhardt and finally, the always enchanting Sampire swings the brush snare with the grace and finesse of a sultry metronome. If her drumming doesn't catch your attention, her eyes certainly will.


If you like high-energy showmanship and top-notch musical prowess, The 9th Street Stompers will see you front row!!!


"It would be easy (and foolish) to discount this music as simply being a kitschy throwback, and through the determined efforts of the band, it sheds any of that stigma, rightly proving itself as honest, earnest and capable of more fun that you could possibly imagine."
