Event

Roochie Toochie and the Ragtime Shepherd Kings
Roochie Toochie and the Ragtime Shepherd Kings have a mission: to perform the weirdest songs from the early days of tin pan alley on the format on which they were first recordedwax cylinder

As documents of American cultural history and musical style, cylinders serve as an audible witness to the sounds and songs through which typical audiences first encountered the recorded human voice. -Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project; Donald C. Davidson Library, University of California at Santa Barbara

For all those of us who share a love of antiquated pop tunes, Roochie Toochie recently took on the challenge of recording them in the only medium that does them justice. These old songs give a voice to a bygone era and reflect the attitudes of their time, and no matter how silly they may seem, they are historical documents of their time.  We aim to mine the zaniest and most obscure songs from the early 20th century and record them for a new audience to underscore both the absurdity and importance of popular music in American history.
