Jump 'N the Saddle Band
Jump 'N the Saddle Band was a country pop group from Chicago, Illinois. They scored a regional hit with the novelty song "The Curly Shuffle" in 1983, a tribute to The Three Stooges. As the tune gained popularity on radio, the group signed to Atlantic Records and released a self-titled album, composed mostly of covers, in 1984. "The Curly Shuffle" became a major U.S. hit, peaking at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 that year.
The band entered into negotiations with Atlantic for a follow-up album in 1984. The label wanted them to record the song "Shaving Cream" for their next single, which the band did not favor; they recorded the song, but with added lyrics critical of the label, and were soon dropped.
Their success was short lived, and the group never had nationwide exposure again. The band continued to play in the Chicago area, still doing shows into the 2000s.
