“Pimp Music, Not People” is the motto of the flamboyant and theatrical retro rock & blues band Dance Hall Pimps.  Formed “just for kicks” in 2009 by vocalist/songwriter RJ Comer and guitarist Jeff Jourard (The Motels), the band became a favorite in the Los Angeles underground cabaret scene. Soon the band started playing mainstream clubs and built a strong local following with encore performances around LA and with frequent appearances at legendary Sunset Strip venues The Roxy, The Viper Room, and The Whiskey A-Go-Go.  The band’s crowd-revving show made them a favorite Los Angeles opening act for national touring bands as diverse as The Fixx, the Rebirth Brass Band, and the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.
