Welcome to the online headquarters of The Yalloppin’ Hounds, the world famous swing band, and pioneers of “Ghetto Swing.”
The first swing band in the world to combine the elements of traditional Swing with Hip-Hop stylings, creating a unique and excitingly fresh hybrid. The band, currently weighing in at seven pieces, sounds like a much bigger group, due to the tight section riffing by the horns, and the constant driving beat. Contrary to many early misconceptions, the Hounds are neither neo-craze jump band nor a rap crew; they are a group of musicians and vocalists of the highest caliber; a swing band which grooves hard with relaxed precision. Since their first incarnation in 1998, the Hounds have grown from a vibrantly authentic swing band to producing some of the most universal and original music of the millennium.
