Yalloppin’ Hounds – The Architect




The Yalloppin’ Hounds pay tribute to America’s greatest composer, Duke Ellington. Not only is this a stand-alone modern swing dance party, it features rare gems, and even never-before-recorded songs such as “The Piano Player”, and “Spankin’ Brand New Doll”, featuring tasty vocals, and the return of Sledge!
