These two Oakland Bands have played this song on stage together in the past and thought a studio recording together would be fun, so here it is!
The T Sisters do a three part harmony on “Roly Poly” with The West Coast Ramblers backing them up.
This was recorded in January 2015. Vocals by Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen. Guitar-Chance Wilson, Steel Guitar- Mikiya Matsuda, Bass- Steve Height, Rhythm Guitar and sound engineering -Steve Walz, Drums and Vibes- Derek McDonald.
The T Sisters captivate audiences with close harmonies, inventive arrangements, and plenty of sass. When performing their lively set of originals and covers—sometimes in arresting a cappella—they call to mind classic girl groups: from The Andrews Sisters and The Ronettes to The Roches and the Dixie Chicks. Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless.
The West Coast Ramblers is the San Francisco Bay Area’s most exciting Western Swing band! The ‘Ramblers capture that late-40’s/early-50’s California Western Swing sound made popular by performers like Tex Williams, Hank Penny, and Billy Jack Wills. Hip arrangements, twin guitar parts, and a little polish turn the the tunes into something that you can’t wait to listen and dance to at their next live show
