One of the best bands I have heard in a while are The Swamp Donkeys. If you like brilliant traditional American musical styles, catch The Swamp Donkeys at my favorite live music venue in Washington, Hamilton Live on June 30.

The Swamp Donkeys are an extremely versatile group of young musicians who play traditional jazz, blues, vaudeville, original music, modern jazz adaptations, and many other jazz and New Orleans-derived styles. They have educations in the authentic, New Orleans, grassroots music scene, playing local festivals and second lines, then transitions into world-class music education programs, playing in concerts all over the globe. Their sound is enormously accessible with their frontmen, the Louis Armstrong-sounding, soulful and sweet James Williams, and the audience-wooing, banjo-strumming, song-writing extraordinaire Sam Friend.
