The Foggy Bottom Whomp-Stompers are the Washington, DC area’s best traditional jazz band for weddings!

If you’re looking for a classic 1920s jazz sound for your wedding’s cocktail hour – or for some rousing traditional jazz music to start the dancing off right – you’ve come to the right place!


In addition to playing our standard prohibition-era jazz repertoire, we can also play traditional wedding songs during the ceremony such as Pachelbel’s canon, here comes the bride, etc.  We can also learn your special song for the first dance — or your parents’ favorite song for the mother-son or father-daughter dances.  We’ll work with you to make sure the music is just what you’re looking for!

And our rates are outrageously affordable, starting as low as $250/hr (although it depends on several factors including travel time to the venue, and what exactly you’re interested in having us play).  You won’t find a more reasonably priced band anytime after the Prohibition era!


If you’re interested in learning more, send us an email at and we can answer any questions you have!
