I remember the sax-heavy bands of the 50's, mostly African-Americans, which backed strippers in fairs and carnivals. Their music was composed mostly of the same riffs, played over and over, and they became almost hypnotic. But I miss 'em now.
Anyone know where one can listen to recordings of some of those online?
Thanks.

Don't know but I remember seeing Barbi Benton before she became involved with Playboy at a place called the Silver Slipper in D.C.
Yea, they had three piece band playing on stage behind her and the other strippers. It consisted of a drummer with maybe 2 drums and a cymbal, a sax and a clarinet.

Fun times at 19 years old.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

The Harlem Hamfats were the first band to break through and become popular playing shuffle rhythms in the 1930s. They led the way for Louis Jordan and his Tympany 5. This opened up things for Louis Prima and paved the way for what we now call R&B. Joe Liggens and his Honeydippers played the kind of music you talked about. By the way, Irvin Feld made his early money producing R&B shows early on.

The quintessential stripper tune is Night Train. And many of the neo swingbands like Big Bad Voodoo Daddies play in the style you wrote about.

Maybe I'm more of a product of my generation than I let on, but listening to Night Train makes me think of Back to the Future more than strippers. Still, it's a good song.

The breaks in Night Train are perfect for bumps and grinds.

I ask my youngest half- sister about her music. Maggie always had a rule that I was NEVER to watch her perform. Shev said she didn't have a perticular number, but used a variety of pop hits, heavy on early Madonna and Debbie Harry.
