Forbes magazine declared Doc Scantlin and His Imperial Palms Orchestra the “best band in America.” And that was before they attained a huge following for their entertainment value and focus on music of the 1930’s. Doc Scantlin’s Orchestra’s performance Friday night was likened by many in the audience to going to Birdland or other jazz clubs or cabarets in Manhattan.

For Bandleader Doc Scantlin and Wife Chou Chou, a Life Inspired by the 1930s

Doc Scantlin

For over a decade, dapper Doc Scantlin has kept the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s alive for Washington, DC and others internationally.

She wears a red tulle dress with a tight bustier with sequins that frame her impressive decolletage, a plume of tulle flowing down the back of her legs. A red-feathered headdress shivers upon her blond updo, above a pale face with striking red lipstick. She’s Chou Chou Scantlin, a songstress built like a Barbie doll, crooning “As Time Goes By.” Behind her, Doc Scantlin, her husband, leads his Imperial Palms Orchestra , a 15-piece, 1930s-themed band that has been a fixture in the Washington area for more than 20 years.  Read More…
