Created in February 2009 by blues singer/songwriter RJC and guitarist Jeff Jourard (formerly of The Motels), the Dance Hall Pimps is a genre-bending show band playing original music that ranges from rootsy garage rock with a haunted swamp vibe to New Orleans-inspired rags and romps to a bluesy, neo soul genre we like to call Gothspel. Our inspirations include The Kinks, The Cramps, Electric Flag, and the unseen dark side of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The killer horn section of “Brother” Bruce Mann and Steve Carr is inspired by the screaming sax in X-Ray Spex and the jumpin’ horns of the Louis Jordan Orchestra. Mann also plays organ, drawing inspiration from Alan Price and Baby Face Willette, but delivering a distinct Bruce Mann style that is both melodic and percussive.
