Fulton Street

French Cassettes
If you're looking for a healthy overdose of oo's and ah's to pair with your lust for hypermelodic indie pop so danceable it'll leave you questioning your high heeled shoe choice for the night or thinking, 'you don't need hands with hooks like these', then I think you'll like it. I do. And it beats shaking almonds out of trees." -Scott Huerta (French Cassettes)

Little David Rose's thumpin' stand-up bass, the double-shuffle drumming of Lee Beary, and the bounce piano of Scott Lawrence provide the rhythmic foundation of the band's jump style. Riffing on top is the trumpet sound of Robert Dehlinger and Jeff "Erv" Ervin on the saxophone. These two fellas create the fireworks of vintage rhythm and blues. The charming Glen Earl Brown Jr on vocals and have become a trademark of Stompy Jones.
