Riff Raff

Riff Raff

Based in Houston, Texas, Riff Raff is a jazz/cabaret vocal group that is often compared to Manhattan Transfer.  The four vocalists Joe Bourgea, Steve Duson, Madeleine Elmer, and Maureen Swanson are veterans of  musical theatre, cabaret and jazz stages.  The group was originally formed in 1989 with Colorado Springs-based jazz pianist Steve Draper after some of the vocalists met while performing in a musical comedy at Main Street Theatre in Houston. Steve Duson and Madeleine Elmer are also vocalists with the Trinity Jazz Ensemble in Midtown.

Their classic “Rat Pack” cabaret style, swing era harmonies,  Latin and Brazilian jazz arrangements  and original comedic parodies have made them a party favorite for Houstonians for a generation.  Their show includes jazz and swing era arrangements of songs written or performed by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, the Modernaires, Carlos Antonio Jobim, Fats Waller, Manhattan Transfer, New York Voices,  the Ink Spots, Ella Fitzgerald and others.
