HOKUM'S HEROES    americana / acoustic / swing
book hokum’s heroes

Hokum’s Heroes play early 20th century pop, twining together the roots of early Jazz, Country Blues, Ragtime, Folk, Vaudeville, Hokum, Gospel, Stringband, Jug Band and Gin House Blues while rendering the result with spontaneity, modern sensibilities and a big backbeat. Its various members have worked on the frontlines of some of America’s best music, having performed and recorded with 1920s-30s stringband legend Howard ‘Louie Bluie’ Armstrong (appearing with him in the PBS documentary “Sweet Old Song”), Morphine, Jim Kweskin, Tarbox Ramblers, Either Orchestra, Michael Hurley, Gunther Schuller and many others, at venues as diverse as The Montreal Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center, The Boston Folk Festival, The Country Music Hall of Fame, and The New York City Blues Festival, garnering praise from the New York Times, Boston Magazine, The Boston Music Awards and more along the way. A Hokum’s Heroes performance offers a glimpse of a time before record stores and radio stations divided music up - when blues, rags, folk, jazz and more sat side by side on the shelf as popular songs. Though such a day is long gone, Hokum’s Heroes is intent on keeping it’s spirit very much alive.
