Equal parts New Orleans jazz and ragtime, The California Feetwarmers deliver horn-heavy rags, banjo stomps, and happy trad jazz for your ears… and feet!
Based in Los Angeles, The California Feetwarmers formed in 2012 and have since garnered a strong league of devoted followers, including music lovers, dancers and children of all ages. Each week, these full-time musicians can be heard from Santa Monica to Downtown L.A., from Hollywood to Malibu, as well as at weddings and private parties throughout Southern California. Always a favorite with the dance crowd, the Feetwarmers have performed at a multitude of swing dance events in and around California.
In 2013 the band brought the energy of their live show into the studio and presented their recording debut. The self-titled album delivers their specific rendering of traditional jazz, blues and rags, and features guest appearances from Phil Alvin (The Blasters) and Andy Bean (The Two Man Gentleman Band).
