Welcome to the Kid Java Site!

I've put together a new version of Kid Java, called "Kid Java's Rent Party." It's a small band (harp, piano, and drums), but we have a big sound! We'll be posting some .mp3s of our new tunes soon!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What kind of music does Kid Java's Rent Party play?

We are a New York City based band that plays in the 'small band, big sound' urban roots music of rent parties. We tend towards swing-oriented material, but sometimes we'll throw in a New Orleans second-line, or a funk tune, or a down-home traditional blues to keep things lively. Even though the band is small,  Doc Treibitz and Hambone Hamilton lay down a powerful groove for every song, leading to the Rent Party motto:

"Never have so few swung so hard for so many!"
