The New Deal Rhythm Band began as the back up band for Norm Langill and his One Reel Vaudeville Show in Seattle, Washington. . When Jerry A. Ranger took over as the bandleader and musical director and Cheryl Bentyne joined as the featured singer, the band began touring internationally.
The band is very excited to announce that it has re-issued three albums recorded by The New Deal. The first album "Hep! Hep!" features Cheryl Bentyne. The New Deal is honored that Cheryl reflects on her days with the New Deal before she became famous singing with the Manhattan Transfer as her training ground!
