Abby DeWald and Amanda Barrett met two times. Once at a party and the second at a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It took two times, but once the spark was lit, they were inseparable. Together, they have taken acoustic music to a new (or maybe truly, old) level – adding costumes and props to their Vaudeville-inspired harmonies. They got their name from a neighbor in LA who was fond of describing them as "ditty bops." The nostalgic newness of it fit them like a glove and they were off on a performance career that has included stops at Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and the folk-star prerequisite interview on National Public Radio. Their most recent album is the Warner-released Moon Over the Freeway, a title that refers both to their LA home (land of superhighways) and a shared love of bicycles.
