Barrelhouse Gang started in the summer of 2015 as a street jam session with various trad jazz players from around the country, who happened to be hanging around Seattle for the summer.  Saxophonist James Walls noticed that people always danced and had a great time wherever we would play, and was inspired to get this act off the streets and into the live music market.  Since then we've played over 100 performances around the Puget Sound, a great number of them weddings and private parties.  Barrelhouse Gang is especially popular with weddings since it is such an upbeat, happy music that people can't help dancing to.
