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 pften as asked to".
Line up: David Hepworth (clarinet/tenorsax/leader); Wil Robinson (trumpet/flugel); Andy Bramell (banjo/guitar); Rob Cotterell (drums)
