The Treniers this week on The Juke In The Back!

The Juke In The Back” focuses on the “soul that came before rock n’ roll,” the records that inspired Elvis, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and countless others.
There were so many influential Rhythm & Blues artists who had a great impact on the development of Rock n’ Roll, but were never able to profit from the new genre they helped to create. The Treniers were just one such group. Their core were the twins Cliff and Claude Trenier, who were later joined by their younger brothers Milt and Buddy. Their sound formed a great bridge from the swing bands of the 1940s to the rock n’ roll jump combos of the early ’50s. Matt The Cat digs up Claude Trenier’s first records as a vocalist for The Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra as well as some early singles for the legendary Charles Mingus. We’ll dig into The Trenier Twins’ early sides for Mercury Records and then rock, roll and swing to their hep sides for the Okeh label. The Treniers only scored one national R&B hit, but they left their mark on the new music they helped to create and popularize; Rock n’ Roll. The Treniers’ story lights up this week’s “Juke In The Back” with Matt The Cat.
