Masters of ragtime, Dixieland blues and early swing, The California Feetwarmers are renowned for an earthy depth of character that sets them apart from others who have followed that throwback path to New Orleans , Circa 1920.

Their boisterous on-stage antics are solidly underpinned by playing that is as close to the source as it can be.

Based in Los Angeles, the band dusts down and re-works old classics, re-visiting material from The Blue Ridge Playboys, Scott Joplin, The Memphis Jugband and Emile Grimshaw’s Rag Pickers.

In January, 2015, they played to 1000 revellers when they sold out Glasgow ’s Old Fruitmarket during Celtic Connections. Those who were lucky enough to get a ticket later reported it had been the biggest party the city had enjoyed since the 1990 City of Culture celebrations!

Tom Jones is their latest fan, having caught them in action at Herp Albert’s legendary Beverly Hills club, The Vibrato. He urged them to seek out a date at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Club and told them: “Just say Tom Jones sent you!”

Should be on prescription for those who need their spirits lifted!” – AmericanRootsUK
