Still working on that hot first release.



 This jazz baby makes the '20s roar again and swings out '30s
tunes buoyantly enough to float away even the Great Depression…She's backed by
top-notch musicians and the results are gloriously entertaining.

San Jose Mercury News

can take on the role of anthropologist, curious about what came before in music
and how musicians reflected their world around them. Award-winning vocalist and
songwriter Roberta Donnay is that rare species of musician who almost lives in
another time, as she and her Prohibition Mob Band exist to revive the Jazz Age
of America.

the heels of their beloved A Little Sugar
release comes their second Motéma Music release, Bathtub Gin. Released
January 20 to coordinate with when prohibition began - January 17, 1920 – the
CD, like A Little Sugar, mines 1920s
gems but also takes the listener on a stroll into the 1930s. A seductive vocalist, Donnay and her band swing mightily
with this authentic collection of vintage jazz, blues and swing that introduces
listeners to the swing era with its jump-swing rhythmic horn sections and new dances.
Donnay also includes four party-rousing shout-chorus originals that evoke and
revive the open spirit that birthed jazz.
