clambake combo / Bio

A swing group from Portland, OR inspired by 1920s-40s swing, hot jazz, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, Les Paul and Mary Ford. From Brazilian to Bebop to Bach, to Parisian musette waltzes; this Guitar and Cello fronted ensemble comes in a lot of combinations, additional players, and permutations but always employs the freedom and spirit of improvisation, a good time, and simply enjoying and loving life.
