Some background on the creation of The St Louis Shim Sham - by Jon Tigert “The St. Louis Shim Sham was a little routine I put together while visiting Jenny Shirar and Christian Frommelt in St Louis. Our friend Joe Smith was holding a “Line dance contest” for a dance event, and people were supposed to submit videos beforehand. He had called me earlier in the day and told me he only had one entry and asked if I could throw something together and submit it by that night.

So I locked myself in a room for about an hour, and put my music on shuffle. Eventually, this song came on and the steps just flowed out of me like they were always meant to be there. Christian later told me that “The Four Vagabonds” (who sing the song for the routine) were originally from St. Louis. …We put it on Youtube and I guess people liked it because we are still teaching it.”         Jon Tigert 2020
