The Tickled Pinks
The Tickled Pinks are a swing vocal trio and band that started as a tribute act dedicated to playing Andrews Sisters arrangements true to their original sound. What started out as three bartending canaries on late night romps evolved into a sophisticated evocation of a time almost forgotten. While the ensemble maintains an authentic quality in it's musicality, the young members bring a fresh energy and witty playfulness to the repertoire. The group also performs original arrangements of popular tunes translated to swing.
