Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers

The Foggy Bottom Whomp-stompers are DC’s best–some would say only–prohibition era jazz band playing your favorite hits from the 1920s and 30s.  You can catch us playing at your favorite speakeasy around town, or book us to play your next gatsby-themed party, dance, or other event!




Trumpet Player Wanted!

Hello! We the Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers, DC’s best (some would say only) traditional jazz band playing music from the early 20th century — dixieland, hot jazz, ragtime, swing, blues, etc.  We practice a few times a month in NW DC and gig around town; we’ve played at, e.g, the Kennedy Center, Gypsy Sallys, Germano’s in Baltimore, National Portrait Gallery etc.  Here’s a video sampler.

Our esteemed trumpet player is leaving the area for grad school in a few months, and we’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic new face to fill his shoes!

Happy Halloween guys and ghouls! For a spooky treat today, check out this great track from 1930, “Mysterious Mose (‘Moises El Misterioso’)” from Rube Bloom & the Bayou Boys. Awesome bass saxophone work on this one by Adrian Rollini, and some terrifyingly hot clarinet playing by the one and only Benny Goodman! post from our Facebook page Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers – http://ift.tt/2wOIo3e
