Gatsby parties, swing dances, brass bands and Mardis Gras parties...1920's jazz is experiencing a rennassiance. The reasons are obvious, this music is fun! It inspires faces to smile and feet to move, and such fun is infectious. Barrelhouse Gang (formerly The Barrelhouse Jive Cats) started as a Seattle street jam in the summer of 2015. Young migratory jazz players on the circuit from New Orleans to Vancouver were congregating at Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, Seattle Center, etc playing just for kicks and whatever change people threw in their cases. Saxophonist James Walls was right in the thick of it, and noticed this happy music from the dawn of the jazz age was drawing very respectable crowds of all ages, cultures and styles, and that crowd nearly always smiled, danced and had a great time. He was thereby inspired to get this act off the streets and into the live music market. A year later with the better part of a hundred gigs under their belt, Barrelhouse Gang is planning their first album release this spring and a full gigging schedule this summer. Come on out and enjoy the music!

We cannot thank this fantastic band enough for their performance at our winter wedding in Whistler. The performance was beyond any expectations we had.. We listened to the songs and watched the videos online, and instantly they attracted our attention, but they do not COMPARE to the live performance that we had. Everyone got up to dance! have had so many comments from guests that they thought these guys were phenomenal, and they were the highlight of the night. I would recommend live music for any wedding and this band are elegant, timeless and bring something everyone can enjoy. Very professional and they went above and beyond during prep and the day!Just fantastic!

Many of the guests asked how we had found such a great band! I would book The Barrelhouse Jive Cats again in a heartbeat, and I highly recommend them. They're very professional and easy to work with too. Thank you for the great evening!
