The Cherokee Maidens

Jazz and western swing… love this music!

My dear friend Robin Macy called me up a few years ago, and said, ” let’s you and me and Jenny Lou form a trio and sing the old songs our grannies love!”   God bless her little pea-pickin’ heart!   What else could I say?  Except for  “AHHHHH- haaaa!”   That is the western swing slang for “AMEN, sister!”

 

The Cherokee Maiden’s are Robin Macy, Monica Taylor and Jennifer Petterson. Together we make up this tight harmony trio in the McKinney Sisters style who sang with The Texas Playboys and The Andrew Sisters… of course.

We sing the great old western swing, jazz, and some of our orginal tunes with Sycamore Swing backing us up!

Kenny (Kentucky) White is the leader of band- and Robin’s husband- Kenny is one of the most amazing musicians around. Kenny plays an old hollow bodied guitar, acoustic, mandolin, and banjo.

Rob Loren plays the fiddle for us… he’s played with Ray Price, Hank Thompson, and fabulous groups throughout Kansas.

Jimmy Campbell plays steel guitar and dobro with us… he also plays with the awesome bluegrass band out of Kansas named Driven, and with the great bluegrass band The Treblemakers.

On many shows we get to have twin fiddles!  Shelby Eicher, the great Tulsa musician who has played with the likes of Roy Clark, JJ Cale, The Tractors, and his own bands The Tulsa Playboys, Mischievous Swing, Mark Bruner & Shelby Eicher, Hot Gypsy Trio,  The Kings of Western Swing, Riders of the Cimarron, and Cowbop.

Jordan Bolig plays the upright bass for us… he is a wonderful musician who can keep the swing, jazz, and the country sounds steady on.

Kirk Russell plays the drums for us… like all the musicians and all maidens , he is multi-talented.

So much fun we have with these Wichita, KS men! Each of the girls and guys respect one another for our talents and enjoy performing together… you can tell that from the smiles and dancing that goes on during a show!
