About/Contact The Viper & His Famous Orchestra

The Viper has a message for you.

Burdened with the sharp vinegar of truth, The Viper and His Famous Orchestra deliver a powerful blend of street-corner jazz, front-porch country, and meeting-hall agitprop.

Their DIY uke-and-suitcase sound frames The Viper’s well-crafted songs about love, theft, buildings, bus routes, life in the key of Bb, and the work of skiffle in an age of mechanical reproduction.
