Founded in 2009 in New York City, The Tickled Pinks are a swing vocal trio and band that began as a tribute act dedicated to playing Andrews Sisters arrangements true to their original sound. While the ensemble maintains an authentic quality in its musicality, the young members bring a fresh energy and witty playfulness to the repertoire. The group also performs original arrangements of popular tunes translated to swing.
Over the years the Pinks have played at Joe's Pub, Brooklyn Bowl, Smalls Jazz Club, Galapagos Art Space, and many other NY mainstays. A recent Pacific Northwest tour included a sold-out performance at The Olympia Country Club, during which the band was presented with the key to the city from Olympia mayor Cheryl Selby.
Vocalists are Stephanie Layton, Kate Sland and Karla Moheno, with Yan Falmagne (piano), Dylan Charles (guitar), Dan Parra (bass), Andrew Zehnal (drums), Nate Sutton (trombone), and Mike Maher (trumpet).
