The Ditty Bops is an American band from Los Angeles, California. Though previously with Warner Brothers, they now self-produce. They are noted for their tight vocal harmonies and playful style. They are headed by Abby DeWald (vocals and acoustic guitar) and Amanda Barrett (vocals, mandolin and dulcimer). Their music is reminiscent of such artists as Joni Mitchell and Simon and Garfunkel, but incorporates a variety of musical styles such as folk, bluegrass, blues, western swing, ragtime and musical theater. Their live shows are often very interactive, and have different themes and theatrical elements complete with props, costumes, skits, and amusing slide shows.

Romantically involved since 1999, DeWald and Barrett met in New York City but formed The Ditty Bops years later after a hunt for a neighbor’s lost cat. When they unwittingly crossed into the backyard of a stranger, they discovered that he was a musician and an avid guitar collector. He encouraged them to form a band and start playing.

Six of their songs have been included on the hit ABC show Grey’s Anatomy. Their song “There’s a Girl” is on the series soundtrack.

The Ditty Bops appeared in Season 4, Episode 9 of The L Word.

The Ditty Bops have appeared twice on Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor: May 7, 2005 from Mitchell, South Dakota; and June 18th, 2005 from Highland Park, Illinois.

From May 23 through September 2, 2006, the Ditty Bops embarked on a cross-country tour by bicycle to commemorate the release of their second album, Moon Over the Freeway. They travelled from Los Angeles to New York City, logging 4,502.75 miles.
