Papa Salty is a jump blues band formed by musician Tim McAllister in 2003 in Portland, Oregon, their base while not on the road. The band solidified with a lineup consisting of Tim McAllister on guitar and vocals, Kevin LaBarron on saxophone, Julian Broji on drums, and Dan Davis on upright bass. Their sound, while rooted in 1940s and 1950s jump blues, has been updated with electric rock and jam band influences.
Papa Salty released their first album called Swing it Big! in 2005, which received favorable reviews locally and internationally. The name Papa Salty is a reference from a T-Bone Walker song, Papa Ain't Salty No More.
