"Live Show Review"

The Scamps, a hybrid quartet with closely honed songs reminiscent of the early Talking Heads, were launching their CD. They played each song from the CD. The lead singer and guitarist, in David Bowie-like short hair, switched midway to a slide guitar. The organ player, a placid Asian woman with a tattoo on her left arm, sang in unison. The bass player, a seemingly emotionless Nordic session musician, was matched by a drummer with tongue out and drum machine. - Inner City Press/Matthew Russel Lee

Lisa Hahn knows how to rock it on her latest release, Interstate. It’s robust and raw with substance. I like that.

"Self Tittled" 2010, The Scamps



The Scamps are a modern throwback band with roots that are steeped in dirty delta blues. Not your typical Brooklyn four piece rock band, The Scamps will bring to mind a hybrid of Talking Heads and Muddy Waters.

Lisa (guitar and lead vocals) and Emily (keyboard/organ and backing vocals) met while Lisa was working on a solo project back in 2006. Their dynamic of raw vs. honed and self taught vs. classically trained, inspired them to begin putting together a band. They soon enlisted Kevin (drums) and Matthew (bass); a two-fisted rhythm section that dares you not to get up and dance.

The Scamps rehearse at a guitar shop where Lisa works days making guitars and basses. Their DIY sawdust strewn surrounding no doubt shaped their musical work ethic. With almost no budget and a few shoe strings, The Scamps have put together a full length debut album released August 30th, 2010!
