Don't Mess with The Hat

by Tray Dahl & the Jugtime Ragband

Tray Dahl's original music is an energetic blend of all the popular styles of the 1920's & 30's – dixieland jazz, 1920's bluesy vocals, a bit of swing, and a pinch of old time gospel – all immersed in that good 'ol early 20th century New Orleans sound.

Album Notes
Tray Dahl & the Jugtime Ragband original songs are individual stories – like mini black & white movies – that take place anywhere from the 1870’s to the 1930’s. As listeners follow the lyrics, envisioning the characters in their settings, the growl of an old muted trumpet and the slide of a trombone solidify the vision and make the story real.

Tray Dahl’s powerful 1920's inspired vocal style finds its roots in the likes of Connee Boswell, Ethel Merman, Bessie Smith & Louis Armstrong. Influenced heavily by the Boswell Sisters, vocal harmonies are a large part of the entire Tray Dahl experience. Behind the vocals - trumpet, trombone, clarinet, tenor banjo, rag piano, drums and upright bass leave audiences with the feel they stepped straight into a jumping Prohibition Era speakeasy.

“Lead singer Tray Dahl tore the place up with her tenor banjo and versatile vocal power. When I say “power,” I really mean it. Dahl evoked many of the growly blues mamas of scratchy 78's that will tear your playhouse down.”
Garrett Cash (No Depression Magazine)

“Atlanta singer-songwriter serves up ‘20s jazz with a sassy twist....Tray Dahl, whose spirited reimagining of ‘20s and ‘30s hot jazz and blues will whisk you back to the days of Bix Beiderbecke and Ma Rainey, and leave a big dang smile on your face.”
