"..irresistably funky rhythms...the sunny vibe of calypso merges with the rhythmic foundation of reggae, accented by horns, steel drums and Peralta's appealing alto voice..."

HOOT!!'s first album coming out in 2011!



HOOT!! is an island funk/world pop band from coastal Maine, fronted by producer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Kim Peralta.

HOOT!!'s use of horns and steel drums gives the music a distinctly Caribbean flavor. Vintage calypso, ska, reggae, funk and latin beats combine with Peralta's catchy melodies and Beatles-influenced arrangements. " I am no longer satisfied with making " toe tapping" music.. HOOT!! takes the music beyond that. We get people to move! "

Peralta's strong, direct voice bucks the breathy female singer/songwriter trend of today. Past reviewers have likened her vocals to Eartha Kitt, k.d. lang and Grace Slick. Several of her songs have won awards from Billboard, the Great American Song Contest and Song of the Year songwriting competitions.
