The instrumental in this video is Streets of Cairo, also known as the "Hutchy-Kutchy," but often just called The Snake Charmer.

Performing are Frankie Barnes on piano, Red on sax, "Hot Lips" Howie Nelson on trumpet, "Chick" Braley on alto sax, with special guest vocalist Pearl. The recording was made by Braley, Lou Blonger's grand-nephew, circa 1962, most likely in a Wisconsin tavern.

Joining fictional representations of the band members are virtual versions of Craig Johnson and his one-time bandmates, Bruce Buckinham and Randy Seals, appearing as virtual mouth bandits.

The animation is by Craig Johnson, Lou's great-great-great-nephew, and eDNA Media Project, using Poser 3D animation software.
