Vicky Tafoya and The Big Beat

£14.99

Product description

A modern take on 1940s and 1950s inspired Rhythm and Blues, Doo Wop, Rock and Roll, and Swinging Jump Blues Americana.
Vicky Tafoya's heroes are Frankie Lymon, The Moonglows, The Flamingos, The Harptones, The Swallows, The Students, The Marcels, and The Skyliners, to name just a few.

Eddie Nichols of Royal Crown reviewed Vicky as follows - "If you've seen her once, you'll never forget it. That has been my experience with everyone, everytime, her name comes up. Combine fire and vocal strength of the Rhythm & Blues and Doo Wop greats of the '50s and '60s and the subtlety of the '40s divas, and you have Ms. Tafoya. Along with her group The Big Beat, you're in for the unique kind of soulful performing that is all too rare nowadays."
