JUMP 'N THE SADDLE BAND - The Curley Shuffle. The Trinka family was down the street in the town where I grew up. Tom is the saxophonist in the Jump 'N the Saddle Band. They were more or less a country pop group. They scored a regional hit with the (novelty) song "The Curly Shuffle" in 1983, a tribute to The Three Stooges. As the tune picked up steam on radio, the group signed to the legendary label - Atlantic Records and released a self-titled album, - photo above - composed mostly of covers, in 1984. "The Curly Shuffle" became a major U.S. hit, peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 that year. The band entered into negotiations with Atlantic for a follow-up album in 1984. I read that the label wanted them to record a song called "Shaving Cream" for their next single, which the band did care to do; they recorded the song, but with added lyrics critical of the label, and were soon dropped. Thus their success was short-lived, and the group never had nationwide exposure again, but they continued to play in the Chicago area, still doing shows into the 2000s.
