Big Ol' Heart


I’m fascinated by the fact that these girls & guys are doing material that’s inspired by the things we did with Phil Spector in the ’60’s. I think it pays tribute to a classic sound which will always be fresh and which will never become dated over time.” – La La Brooks (The Crystals)

Hiring Jenny Dee and The Deelinquents insures a full room of energy.  Their brand of classic songs is perfectly suited for the multi-generational crowd at weddings.  Available as a 6 to 12-piece band, Jenny and her crew throw down on classics by The Ronettes, The Crystals, Ike & Tina, with some Beatles, Blondie, and even some re-imagined Led Zeppelin thrown in for good measure.

Most Boston music fans will recognize Jen D’Angora (a/k/a Jenny Dee) as the singer/guitarist in garage stalwarts The Downbeat 5 as well as punk/pop darlings The Dents.

Three years ago, D’Angora started working on a new batch of songs that were slightly different from the material she’d written for her other bands and decided to indulge in her love of the girl group sounds of the 60′s.

I’ve been a fan of that music since I was really young and my interest was rejuvenated as I started getting into Blondie and The New York Dolls – their interpretation of songs by the Shangri Las and other groups fascinated me. That’s basically what this record’s about – writing in a style that I love, having a great time, and working with amazing people.” says D’Angora.

The Deelinquents formed soon thereafter, with Tony Goddess from Papas Fritas/The Rudds (guitar), Eric Salt (guitar), Phil Aiken (keyboards), Ed Valauskas from The Gravel Pit/The Gentlemen (bass), and Eric Anderson (drums). In addition to the core band, Jen added her sister Beka Dangora and Samantha Goddess to sing harmonies and dance their butts off.

There isn’t a music on earth that better suits D’Angora’s voice than girl-group-era R&B, straight-up, and that’s what she’s singing here – with bonus points for writing songs that hold their own next to the classics. (There’s a Daptone-like quality to her recordings that makes you do audio double-takes: are you sure this shit wasn’t recorded in 1964?).” – The Boston Phoenix

The single and title track of Jenny Dee & The Deelinquents’ full-length debut, “Keeping Time” (Q-Dee Records), charted in the Top 20 Downloads on Amazon.com.

Some of the band’s recent touring highlights include shows at SXSW & Pop Montreal, a whirlwind headlining tour of Spain, a performance opening for The Breeders at the Azkena Rock Festival, and opening for J. Giles Band & Aerosmith at historic Fenway Park, in their hometown of Boston, MA.

 The Deelinquents treatment is classic Motown, with a James Jamerson bass riff and a piano and sax straight out of the Four Tops, while Dee’s vocal at the fade-out is much less restrained than any female singer was ever allowed to be at that label.” – New Haven Advocate

The band recently caught the attention of Girl Group/Phil Spector legend, La La Brooks – former lead singer for The Crystals (“Da Doo Ron Ron”, “Then He Kissed Me”) and are currently serving as her backing band. La La and The Deelinquents will be performing at this year’s Ponderosa Stomp Festival in New Orleans in September.
