ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since its inception in 1997, the New Memphis Hepcats have dedicated themselves to providing the finest in big band music. Their repertoire ranges from early masters such as Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, to greats like Frank Sinatra and Count Basie, and the ground-breaking music of Stan Kenton and Dizzy Gillespie. Their music is both compelling to hear and entertaining to dance to. The group has been featured in top Memphis nightspots such as Elvis Presley's Memphis, Automatic Slims, and Huey's, and was the house band for swing night at the Hi-Tone Cafe for two years. In 1999, the band released its first album, "Live at the Hi Tone," which was recorded at two of those steamy nights in January 1999.

That same year, the New Memphis Hepcats were nominated by the Memphis Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for the Newcomer Award at their Premier Player Awards, at which the band also performed.
The New Memphis Hepcats have made appearances at numerous festivals and other events, including Arts in the Park, the Memphis Music and Heritage Festival, Collierville's "Main St. Collierville" series, the Memphis Italian Festival and at the opening game for the Memphis Redbirds 2001 season.

The band has also performed on Fox 13's "Good Morning Memphis" and twice on WKNO's "Friday Live Lunch". The New Memphis Hepcats fill the majority of their schedule providing music for weddings, parties, and corporate events throughout the Mid-South. Several Memphis publications including The Commercial Appeal and the Memphis Flyer have featured the band, which has been described as "a fun, even romantic, group whose supple mastery of swing music will have even the most lead-footed of listeners tapping their toes . . ." (Mark Jordan, Memphis Flyer)
