The Wiretappers are an acoustic string band from the Seattle area, playing a mix of juke joint music, western swing, classic country, dancehall honky-tonk, and hillybilly 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 to enjoy some Swing, One Step, and Blues in various tempos to enrich your dancing.
