Biography

Spike Jones was a popular musician and comedian during the 1940s and 1950s. He and his backing band “The City Slickers” employed a wide variety of zany vocals, household implements and shotguns to produce their wacky, yet musically intriguing tracks.

Reputed to have the most talented and highly-paid musicians of the day, Spike Jones and his musicians were considerably more than simply novelty performers. Much of their performances even included theatrics and musical athletics. Spike Jones was subtley avant-garde in that he deftly combined elements and master performers of pop, dance, early jazz, blues, country and folk music with genes as distant as opera and classical.
