The Snowdroppers – Do The Stomp
The Snowdroppers are an Australian punk and rock band with Johnny Wishbone on lead vocals and banjo, Pauly K on guitar, Nick London on bass guitar and Cougar Jones on drums. Their debut album, Too Late to Pray, was released in 2009. The band toured the United States in March 2011.
The band have played at Australian festivals including Big Day Out, East Coast Blues & Roots Music Festival, Come Together Music Festival, Village Fair, Peats Ridge, and Gympie Muster. In October 2010, they toured New Zealand supporting Gin Wigmore. During early 2011, the group played six gigs across the United States including The Viper Room in Los Angeles and SXSW festival in Austin, Texas in March.
The Snowdroppers are an old style good time family fun band, whose feel good tunes harken from a more innocent era. From the days when jitterbugging, speak easys and contracting cholera was all the rage. They tackle issues such as substance dependancy, spousal abuse, homocide and good old fashioned misogyny.
Brothers Johnson -Stomp 1980 live
Guitarist/vocalist George Johnson and bassist/vocalist Louis Johnson formed the band Johnson Three Plus One with older brother Tommy and their cousin Alex Weir while attending school in Los Angeles. When they became professionals, the band backed such touring R&B acts as Bobby Womack and the Supremes. George and Louis Johnson later joined Billy Preston’s band, and wrote “Music in My Life” and “The Kids and Me” for him before leaving his group in 1973.
Quincy Jones hired them to play on his LP Mellow Madness, and recorded four of their songs, including “Is It Love That We’re Missing?” and “Just a Taste of Me.” Jones took them on a Japanese tour, then produced their debut LP, Look Out for Number 1, after they signed with A&M, which was also his label at the time (1976). They scored a number-one R&B and number-three pop hit with “I’ll Be Good to You,” and enjoyed R&B chart toppers in 1977 and 1980 respectively with “Strawberry Letter 23” and “Stomp!,” while sustaining a consistent hit presence via such songs as “Get the Funk Out Ma Face” and “Runnin’ for Your Lovin.” Jones remade “I’ll Be Good to You” in 1989 with Ray Charles and Chaka Khan on his Back on the Block release.
