About Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes:
Formed in 2009 over a mutual love of early rhythm n’ blues records and rock n’ roll, singer-songwriter Clairy Browne and her harmonizing group of rogue musicians The Bangin’ Rackettes began rehearsing in an abandoned coffin factory called “The Pound” in the suburbs of Melbourne. Together the nine-piece band has come a long way thrilling both festival and U.S. club crowds alike with their young take on old-school soul, rhythm and blues, jazz and doo-wop which plays a large part in their broad multi-generational appeal. Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes--Clairy Browne (vocals), Camilla (vocals), Loretta Miller (vocals),  Ruby Jones (vocals), Jules “Crazy Legs” Pascoe (bass guitar), Darcy McNulty (baritone sax), Gabriel Strango (Piano), Peter Bee (guitar) and Ricky Martyn (drums).
