Hello, we’re Jack and Kitty!
We are Emmy Award winning vaudevillian songsters – playing family friendly jug band folk music influenced by old blues, ragtime and jazz from the 1920s and 1930s. Kitty’s uncle is reggae legend Bunny Wailer (of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame) and Jack’s babysitter was oddball ukulele weirdo Tiny Tim (“Tip Toe Through The Tulips”). Our music is a lot like if Bunny and Tiny had a duo: fun, strange and entertaining! One reviewer called us “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé.”
Four of original songs can be heard in the 2017 Oscar nominated film “The Florida Project” (directed by Sean Baker) which stars Willem Dafoe.
A few years ago, we co-created and co-hosted a kids TV series which aired on over 150 PBS member stations nationwide and in 175 countries on the AFN Family Network. We produced the series independently while living in Nashville, Tennessee.
Thanks for visiting us!
Jack and Kitty
