Listen to Crazy People


Camp Street is Brooklyn’s premier close harmony singing group, steeped in the vocal jazz traditions of the 1920s and early 1930s. Their repertoire leans heavily on cuts from the Boswell Sisters but also various selections from the 1950s and 60s. Regardless of the song’s era, every note is faithfully representative of the swing and boogie woogie generation.

Camp Street plays music old enough that transcriptions do not exist. For that reason, the band painstakingly transcribes much of their repertoire from period recordings. While tedious, the process produces changes and alterations to the originals – as rich, intricate, and unexpected as the original composers intended.

Their performance, though anachronistic, invokes the joy and romance of ALL eras. Camp Street pays homage to music that was the punk rock of its time – unconventional, youthful, and most significantly, rebellious.
