The Washboard Resonators hail from Leeds in England and can be described as sounding and looking like ‘a ragtime street band meets a Hollywood musical on a theatre stage somewhere in around 1932’.
Their favourite performers include the jazz, ragtime, hokum, blues, comedy and vaudeville sounds of Louis Armstrong, Blind Boy Fuller, Fred Astaire, The Washboard Rhythm Kings, Robert Johnson, Gene Krupa, Max Miller, Tampa Red and The Memphis Jug Band.
The spirit of these long gone artists and their music is summoned every time the band hits the stage with their mixture of well known traditional songs and newer songs written by the band.
After playing many of the UK’s top blues and jazz festivals they are now selling out small theatres, venues and arts centres around the country and look forward to playing The Globe.
