I had never heard of Good Shot Judy previously. However, they were appearing at a nearby community performance venue, so we bought the ~ $20 tickets to check them out. I’m glad we did.
Their bio states that the two brothers at the heart of this endeavor were originally in a punk band. At some point (maybe when they aged out of it?) they migrated to 40s/50s jazz instead. It is a good fit. I thought that the band (including a horn section, drummer, guitarist, the brothers on bass and vocals, and an accompanying female vocalist) did justice to the set of songs they chose. It would be easy to slide into campy renditions of some tunes from this era, but they played it straight. They also include some songs that were of a more modern feel (specifically Sweet Child of Mine done in the style of the 50s, a la Post-Modern Jukebox; and Jump in the Line). Though most of the audience was older than my wife and me, I never felt out of place or bored after the music started. I’d readily see GSJ again.
