the music i hear coming in through the alley....

I really like the music of this particular band that I hear practicing somewhere nearby. I hear it from my window coming in from the alley north of 18th & Carpenter. It sounds like big band or jazz with husky female vocals. I can't locate the building they're in. They were practicing tonight. I'd be much obliged if someone knows who they are. Thanks!

    I'm on 18th/Throop. I have never heard this band but I like yer description and this post in general. I'd pop some clever Sharpie Marker made signs up around the alley. I hope you find them, for real!

    If you like that sound , check out the Congregation -they are fantastic! If you find out who's practicing, let us know!

  • I think there is a rehearsal space above the barbeque place on 18th. Maybe the sound is coming from there? I've walked by before and heard bands playing.
