Album Notes
Over more than 10 years, The Pearly Shells have gained a reputation as Melbourne’s premier Jazz/Swing/RnB band with a classic style and look reminiscent of the Golden Age of Ellington, Basie, Louie jordan and Brother Ray.

Famous for their Swingin’ back beat sound and Hollywood style, luminescent clam-shell stands, The Pearlys have been serving up Hot Jump blues and Swinging Jazz in bars, clubs, festivals and dancehalls around the country.
With their enormous repertoire and respect for musical genres , The Pearly Shells pride themselves on playing their material with the passion it deserves.

Says bandleader Steve Purcell.....

"The truth is the Pearly Shells first started out as a band in a dream.
They were dressed sharp in suits and hats and the stage was softly lit by their luminesicent clam shell music stands
The music was hot jumpin’ jazz and the band was swingin’ out with the dancefloor full of crazy dancers.
Then I woke up.
I was so disapointed the band wasn’t real I set about starting one just like it.
A dozen years later and I’m still in that band with a great bunch of people playing festivals and clubs, parties and dances all over and we are just about to release our 8th album on our own record lable.

Life can be a dream, sweetheart."
