Listen to A Viper Just The Same

The most awarded band at last year’s Austin Music Awards, The Jitterbug Vipers return to Austin’s famed South by Southwest festival in 2015. The band recently released a video for their hit song, “A Viper Just the Same,” which was featured on the hit CBS show, The Good Wife. The video features a barrage of counterculture-inspired images intermixed with footage of the reptilian plight, like something snatched directly from Tarantino’s occipital cortex. It’s psychedelia meets Wild Kingdom, and it’s not to be missed.

The Jitterbug Vipers have an authentic and impressive command of American roots music. The band is made up of seductive vocalist, Sarah Sharp; drummer, Masumi Jones; bassist, Francie Meaux Jeaux and “Texas’ Most Dangerous Guitar Player,” Slim Richey. “We don’t think of ourselves as a jazz band,” declares Meaux Jeaux. “We think of ourselves as a 1930s rock band. We just wail.”
