A rent party is a social occasion where tenants hire a musician or band to play and pass the hat to raise money to pay their rent, originating in Harlem during the 1920s. It is with this spirit of music made for fun in small spaces that we approach the music. It's swingin', hot, danceable, and most of all FUN!

Comprised of an eclectic group of Austin transplants, Rent Party brings a unique blend of musicians from varied musical backgrounds and influences.  This diversity manifests in a fresh blend of hot jazz, vintage swing, and jazz manouche.  

Make sure to keep and eye out for out debut release, Walkin' Around Money.  The five song EP, recoded at Ramble Creek Studio in Austin, TX and produced by Britton Beisenherz will be released digitally on 8/1/16 and the album release show will be announced shortly thereafter.
