Buck & A Quarter Quartet / Wahoo Skiffle Crazies
Buck & A Quarter Quartet:
A "quartet and a quarter," we have made it our mission to play forgotten gems and favorites of the golden age of American popular music and vintage-inspired originals. We play them in our own category-defying style, described as "skiffle meets Cole Porter," all on strings with additional instruments like C-melody saxophone, clarinet, tuba, bass sax, temple blocks, gong and bell tree.
