My husband, Dan Armstrong, is a bass player in the Chicago Symphony. We’ve been collaborating on songwriting for years, and have invented the genre “Neo-Vaudeville” to define our style. Here are a couple of samples - with a big shout out to our son, Keith Armstrong, who had a hand in creating the Coelacanth Flip Flop.
