Vocal-ease and The Boogie Men


The Big Band era was a bit before our time, so you might wonder how we came to be playing swing and boogie-woogie music.  It began in 1988 when Vocal-ease, we three women, put a band together and performed a few Andrews Sisters songs for a 40-year reunion of Camp Stoneman, a World War II military base.  The concert went over so well that we decided to expand our repertoire, which includes songs like “Sentimental Journey”, Jump, Jive ‘n Wail”, “Chatanooga Choo-Choo” and “Something’s Gotta Give”.   We also do music from the 1950s and ‘60s, featuring the sounds of Motown, the Beach Boys, and The Four Seasons.

We love this music because it has clever lyrics, sweet melodies and harmonies, intricate musical arrangements, and it isn’t weighed down by heavy social messages.  It’s simply great music, and you won’t have anxiety over your kids hearing it ... it’s family-friendly.

Our “younger” fans can enjoy our tributes to the great artists of the ‘50s and ‘60s, including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, The Temptations, and Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, to name just a few.

We perform throughout the San Francisco Bay Area all year at summer festivals, reunions, car shows, dinner/dances and we are also available for private functions.  Check out our event calendar for events in your area!

Also, check out our 2013 CD release, “Life is Good!”, featuring classic favorites of the ‘50s and ‘60s.  It’s now available, along with our 2008 release, “Side by Side”.
