The Sportin' Lifers

The Sportin’ Lifers, featuring Erin Wallace, capture the sound of a time when a form of popular American music known as Rhythm and Blues was the dance music of the day. Neither a period act nor a costume band, the Sportin’ Lifers aim to take you into the world of classic American music brought into the modern day.

The Sportin’ Lifers started life as a Jump Blues and Rhythm band, but they didn't stop there. Soul, jazz, swing, and funky R&B are all in the mix. They can swing from hip, sweet mood-setting background music to irresistible high-test dance hall energy without missing a beat. The sound is uptown but with enough juke joint grease and smoke to make everyone happy. Come see what all the fun is about, and please check you razor at the door.
