To step into Birch Pereira and the Gin Joints’ soundscape is to have your fingers on a veritable radio dial. With deep sonic roots reaching to virtually every style of mid-twentieth century American music — from Americana to blues to jazz, soul, and vintage rock ’n’ roll — the versatile Seattle-based band offers a rangy dial’s worth of songs for audiences who want to sock-hop in poodle skirts one minute, rock out to hot guitar licks the next, and later hug their honeys under the stars as a car stereo plays into the night. Featuring front man Birch Pereira’s “old soul” tenor voice and his skilled bass playing, the Gin Joints offer captivating arrangements of well-crafted originals and well-chosen covers.
