If you didn’t know any better, you may think The Old Married Couple were plucked from the 1920s Jazz/Vaudeville crowd, transported to the 1960s Folk/Country/Blues scene and finally made their way to the early 21st Century Indie Music arena. Perhaps they have settled down somewhere within the same city limits as Pokey Lafarge and The Ditty Bops while listening to Cole Porter on the gramophone.
The Old Married Couple are the faces of new vintage, playing Dixieland style music with a vaudevillian twist that would be at home as much in the Music Halls of the 19th century as they are in the 21st century. Riley and Katie are a young married pair in their 20’s but they’re vintage in style and sound. They combine a witty songwriting style with a distinctive kazoo and fun infused sound that takes influences from Dixieland, skiffle, swing and music hall and presents it all with a vaudevillian tongue planted firmly in cheek. The Old Married Couple bring toots and hoots with wit, rhythm and catchy hooks from the perspective of young lovers.
With the release of their debut album, they will be bringing a full band and their vaudevillian wackiness to the Nation's Capital as part of the 'Welcome to the Music Hall' tour
