Half Pint & The Growlers


Violin, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, Fiddle, Accordion, Clarinet.


Half Pint & The Growlers play a tasty brew of Swing, Gypsy, Twang, and Soul that’ll take you for a spin from New Orleans to Havana, Paris to Memphis. In true gypsy spirit, they cover a lot of ground – playing originals and covers from this century and that, getting hipsters and old-timers on the dance floor in places from speakeasies to honky tonks. Catch them at area festivals, watering holes, and markets.
