Wack-A-Doo, a St. Louis-based, vintage swing jazz quartet, will have your toes tapping to their muted horns, zinging flutes and crazy kazoos. Bob your hair and hike up your skirt as the accordion, the "fancy" guitar and the hi-hat shaker make you want to Charleston all the way through this time machine of a live session on the Musical Merry-Go-Round.

Valerie Tichacek's speakeasy vocals purr jewels such as "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime," "Alexander’s Ragtime Band" and "Be My Little Baby Bumble-Bee." Paul Davis plays the "not-so-fancy" guitar, while Mark Hrabovsky's on 'fancy' guitar and percussion and Brian Reno plays coronet and vintage horns. The repertoire of this laid-back ensemble primarily dates back to tunes from 1918, allowing the band to create within the public domain. Wack-A-doo plays local venues, such as the Muny Pre-Opera Show and the Webster Farmers' Market, and the band also offers its musicianship for hire for private parties.
