Makin' Whoopee - Single

by Deanne Matley

supported by


"Makin' Whoopee" is a classic jazz/blues tune from 1928 written by Gus Kahn (lyrics) and Walter Donaldson (music).

Although originally referenced for celebrating a marriage, Makin' Whoopee has become another term for Getting Freaky, Doing the Wild Thing, Dancing in the Sheets, and, yes, even Schnoodlypooping! It has been covered by many greats such as Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and of course, who can forget, Michelle Pfeiffer's version in the film "The Fabulous Baker Boys.

The Roarin’ 20s of the past meets the Roarin' 20s of today. Smooth and sensual with a little bit of sparkle and an easy swing, this version may just encourage a little more "dirty dancing" in the kitchen.


released February 12, 2021
Montreal legend George Doxas recorded Deanne's original arrangement at Boutique de Son, Montreal, QC with Taurey Butler on piano, Morgan Moore on upright bass, and Richard Irwin on drums.
