The ensemble creates what the Wack-A-Doo website describes as, "toe-tapping Vintage Swing, Folksy Americana and Speakeasy Syncopation." Vocalist Valerie Tichacek, famous for her local jazz stylings with the Original Knights of Swing, joins her band to bring forth high-spirited songs appealing to listeners of all ages. A project described as "reminiscent of nostalgic eras; the Cafes of 1920's Europe, Prohibition, Juice Joints and the back-porch swing," Wack-A-Doo also has the ability to morph from a nine-piece orchestra to a neat quartet.
The band's song "Happy Feet," with its merry, muted trumpet melodies and honeyed vocals, proclaims, "I got those ten little tapping toes/and when I hear a tune I can't control/my dancing heels to save my soul/Weary blues can’t get into my shoes/because my shoes refuse to grow weary." The lyrics to this song reflect the general disposition of Wack-A-Doo’s sound: positive and upbeat with lots of room to boogie.
