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 favorite 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.
In 2016 they released their first album ‘The Washboard Resonators’, a collection of old blues and jazz numbers recorded by the band in Jack’s shed. In February 2018 they recorded an originals album; ‘Scrub That Thing’ on all 1940s and 50s microphones and tape machines at ‘Sugar Rays Vintage Studio’ in Essex, UK.
