Bellows & Squawk
Upbeat Vaudevillian Swing
Bellows & Squawk give you our unique interpretations of neglected gems from the American Song Book.
Despite our profound respect and reverence for song writers, we have sometimes been known to take liberties with a lyric. Among our artistic influences we count Mickey Katz, Spike Jones, Slim Gaillard, Ethel Merman, Sophie Tucker, Count Basie, Bert Williams, George Burns, and Gracie Allen.
Bellows & Squawk’s performances have been well received at nursing facilities, street corners, funerals, charity benefits, farmers markets, coffee houses, and festivals such as Art in the Pearl in Portland, Oregon; Tumbleweed Music Festival in Richland, Washington; NW Folklife Festival in Seattle; the Nanaimo Fringe Festival in British Columbia; and at several restaurants and hotels in Guatemala.
