What a busy week!

Gilla, Max and Sign

We played with Squirrel Nut Zippers on Thursday, where we opened with a 40-minute-exactly set of our best bangers. Someone was so amazing as to take a video of the end of Gigolo and all of One and Only and send it to us! Check it out below:

Then we went to Jackson, Ohio on Saturday evening to play for the Southern Hills Arts Council‘s Evening with the Arts. We swang and swung until we could not swing any more. They caught some pictures of us in action.


Finally, a group of us played at Sunlight market this morning! Two hours of real-life swing music down on Gay Street across from Tip Top. Big shoutout to Bob at the –> Webner Family Blog <– for catching us at today’s Sunlight market and –> writing a little about us <–! We’ll be there again in June: come by from 11am-1pm on June 17th and say hi!


Whirlybirds at Sunlight Market!

Some of the Whirlybirds are playing at the monthly Moonlight Market on Gay street in Columbus, Ohio. Every second Saturday we’ll be down there playing some swingin’ tunes for the people!

We’re opening for Squirrel Nut Zippers!

We’re very happy to announce that we are opening up for one of our favorite bands and biggest influences, The Squirrel Nut Zippers on Thursday, May 17th at Skully’s Music-Diner! They are on tour in support of their latest album (which you can find here), called Beasts of Burgundy.

But the album that changed us before we were even a band had to be Perennial Favorites. Take a listen to “Suits Are Picking Up The Bill”, “Ghost Of Stephen Foster” or “That Fascinating Thing” and you might hear a little bit of us in there.
