Having emerged from the dark underground music scene of Seattle, Gunstreet Glory spends their time hanging out with burlesque dancers and living large at all-night speakeasies. Often described as haunting Americana, their sound ranges anywhere from surf-rock to (link hidden)untry with jazz and rockabilly elements. Their instrument includes lead guitar, rhythm guitar, drums, upright bass, clarinet, saxophone, and female lead vocals. Their sound has been compared to Tom Waits, Neko Case, the Red Elvises, Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt, PJ Harvey, Devotchka, The Cowboy Junkies and Chuck Berry.
Very much enjoyed the band after seeing them live at the High Dive. Reminded me of the 1920's burlesque scene or a western epic. The lead singer has powerful female vocals with a dynamic range. The horns in the band add a dark, mysterious feel to the creeping guitar and bass.
