Miss Mamie Lavona the Exotic Mulatta and her White Boy Band
Jazz / Cabaret / Party
Hello hepcats and catettes,
Our gig tomorrow August 21st is no longer in Oakland. It is
EL RIO 3158 Mission St (@ Cesar Chavez),
San Francisco, CA 94110.
As fate would have it El RIo was a spot where I hung out in college.
I had classmates that lived around the corner. I even hung out there with
some musicians. I know!

"Miss Mamie and the boys have been steaming up small bar shows with their New
Orleans bordello vibe for a couple of years now...Miss Mamie Lavona and her band
sound like the corrupters who'll take the innocents out after the show and give
them hangovers and a case of the clap." Brendan Kiley, The Stranger
it's tempting to lump Miss Mamie Lavona and Her White Boy Band in with jazz revivalists,
Lavona and her crew borrow from far too many other genres to be solely classified
as a jazz band. Instead, think of them as the musical equivalent of your favorite
burlesque dancer shimmying her hips." Tizzy Asher, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Mamie Lavona has the pipes & musical style of Amy Winehouse (plus a healthy
dose of the Squirrel Nut Zippers), but is far easier to look at." Mary
