The Depressionaires

The Depressionaires are a performance band covering American and European songs from the depression era, part minimalist Swing Band with influences from klezmer to French and German cabaret of the 1930s. The combination of song choice, sound and performance of the band contemporizes the lyrical content of the music from a time when everything seemed to be on the brink. The Depressionaires are simultaneously intimate and powerful, an intimacy which is comforting and a big sound which is energetic and provokes participation.
