DC Area’s Best
Prohibition Era Jazz Band

The Foggy Bottom Whomp-stompers are the DC area’s best–some would say only–prohibition era jazz band playing your favorite hits from the 1920s and 30s. With a mix of Hot Jazz, Dixieland, early Swing, Blues, we’re ready to liven up a speakeasy, gatsby-themed party, swing dance, or any given street corner!

We play weddings, parties, and send-offs

Are you or someone you know considering marriage, a civil union, re-marriage, or any other commitment ceremony? Find us on WeddingWire!

We are also available to play any of the following events you may be planning: party, dance party, fall formal, divorce, bar OR bat mitzvah, ice cream social, and good old-fashioned New Orleans send-off (funeral)! Our fee is denominated in 1920s currency and is thus very reasonable.

Contact us now and we will do our best to meet your needs!

Sincerely yours,
The Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers
