$50 - $50 per event
If it's a party you want, The Barrelhouse Jive Cats are ready to deliver a wallbangin' hootenanny! We are a traditional swing band in the style of the 1920's hot jazz. We are able to fit most any budget as a small duo all the way up to a seven-piece band with multiple horns and a truly stellar vocalist.

The Barrelhouse Jive Cats started as a Seattle street band playing dixieland jazz in the summer of 2015. Founder and saxophonist James Walls has been performing around the Seattle area since 1998, as well as other cities in the western US. He has played all styles of music with dozens of different groups. But traditional jazz and blues is where his passion lies.

With such a deep love of early swing jazz, James was inspired to start The Barrelhouse Jive Cats after observing that swing is still a universally loved music. It's contagious melodies, toe-tapping beats and pure old-fashioned fun make a party happen wherever it's played. You don't need to know how to dance either, your feet and body will instinctively move to the beat, you can't help it! It's a happy and timeless music that has endured the ages and will continue being played for generations to come.

A+ and five stars!!!! The Barrelhouse Jive Cats were fantastic at our wedding reception. They sounded fantastic and provided the exact ambiance we were looking for. 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!
