The Barrelhouse Wailers serve up their own take on Prohibition Era hot jazz and blues music of the 1920’s and 1930’s. They perform on only acoustic instruments to retain the authentic sound of that period. The Wailers bring their passion and energy to the style, making it as fresh today as it was when it was the newest, hottest dance music 100 years ago, Including writing original music in the style. They have been influenced by a cocktail of artists, past and present, like Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Tuba Skinny, Sydney Bichet, Billie Holiday as well as Traditional New Orleans Jazz, Vintage Blues, and Big Band sounds.
They began performing shows in January, 2013 and have been playing steadily around Ventura and Los Angeles since then. They have 2 studio albums released available on Bandcamp and Reverbnation.
