Django Reinhardt

Scott Perry & Front Porch Swing

Imagine hillbilly act Homer and Jethro jamming with be-bopper Charles Mingus, while Blind Lemon Jefferson and Ukulele Ike take turns sitting in, and you have an idea of FPS's sound. A toe tapping tour of American roots music!

Front Porch Swing features the reso-phonic acrobatics of Scott Perry (reso-phonic guitar, ukulele & vocals), backed by the jazzy picking of Tom Ohmsen (mandolin), and the rock solid Bob Thomas (upright bass & bass saxophone).

An eclectic blend of Americana styles with a twist is FPS's specialty. Their repertoire features hillbilly swing, blues, jazz, honky tonk and a dose of ukulele madness.
