The Wiretappers are an acoustic string band from the Seattle area, playing a mix of juke joint music, western swing, classic country, dance hall honky-tonk, and hillbillly jazz, with a bit of bluegrass, jazz standards, gypsy, and funky folk mixed in. Their sound is groove-oriented and perfect for getting dancers out on the floor, with great instrumentals, lead vocals and lots of harmony singing. Expect some classic two steps and romantic waltzes as well. Should be an evening to cut loose and enjoy the kick-ass dynamics of a great western swing band.
