Washboard Cutups is the band you would have heard in the back room of a speakeasy during
Prohibition. Percussionist and singer Mike Daugherty (Yes Yes Boys, Blue 4 Trio, Gigantor,
Black Crabs) has formed the hottest new band in the Northwest to play blues, stomps, rags,
and early jazz for your listening and dancing pleasure.
Mike is excited to feature these fine musicians: Bert Barr plays the hot cornet and has been
the leader of the Uptown Lowdown Jazz Band for over 45 years! Dave Loomis blows the
slide trombone and has been playing Trad Jazz since he was a teenager. Banjoist Kevin
Johnston started playing at the tender age of 5 in his family band. At 10, he opened for the
legendary Eddie Peabody. Taylor Kent is the youngest band member, but plays the bass and
tuba like an old pro. He recently left the Spokane Symphony to play Hot Jazz in Seattle!
Come to a Washboard Cutups show and you’ll see why fans are saying: “I don’t know what it
is, but I love it!”
