Formed in 2012 Washington Whirligig has quickly gained an enviable reputation for it's versatility and professionalism. Playing early New Orleans through to driving mainstream jazz, swing and blues - something for everyone.

Jim Douglas, of Alex Welsh Band fame, says of them "Whirligig by name and by nature, a joy to both listen to and play with. Their enthusiasm , endeavour and excitement they create will in my opinion as an occasional guest, take them a long way toward their drive to success. The Alex Welsh Band are among their influences and inspirations and I will be happy to play with them as often as asked to "
