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!
