The Satin Chaps, Jeni Wren

The Satin Chaps

The Satin Chaps ply their trade in the largely uncharted waters of European style go-go/ soul of ‘60s era groove-pop composers like Ingfried Hoffman, Gert Wilden, and Heidi Brühl. To make it palatable stateside (and to make it their own), they mix hints of American purveyors like Memphis soul kings The Bar-Kays and Pac NW garage legends the Wailers. Aided by the howl of their three-piece horn section, the whiz-bang of their Hammond organ, and the percussion necessities to make it all sparkle, the Chaps specialize in sweaty, booty-shaking music. Hailed as “a triumphant celebration of all things rhythm and blues” by Blizt Magazine and “The Party Album of the year” by The Vinyl Anachronist music blog, the group’s self-released debut long player, Might I Suggest The Satin Chaps, is part homage to the likes of Booker T and the MGs, The Mohawks, and Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.
