Barefoot and Pregnant was born from a desire to add a female voice to the famous, drunken and mostly irreverent/acoustic gospel brunch meetings of the Church of the Holy Cocktail and the Latter Day Drinkers. Many sinners have since been saved by their girl-power harmonies. Thanks to Sister DJ Dana and her Valley Fever country music nights at the Yucca Tap Room, the group expanded their line up, as well as their repertoire, adding 50s and 60s lady country standards and other songs of love gone way wrong. Multi-part harmonies continue to be the driving force for Barefoot and Pregnant, with accordion, ukulele, upright bass, washboard, snare and guitar completing their unique sound. You can listen to some of their songs on their Facebook page.
