Slips and the Flamin’ Whippersnappers
“New Orleans Jazz, Blues and Swing”

Slips and the Flamin’ Whippersnappers, or better known as “Slips and the F.W.’s” are a group of musicians from the Gold Coast and Brisbane who love to reignite the spark and charm of Early Blues, Traditional Jazz, Swing and Ragtime tunes from the 1900’s to 1940’s.

Influenced by the music of the early 20th century, Slips and the F.W.’s thrive on performing old time tunes in their own unique way including originals from their 2020 debut album ‘SUGOI’ bringing a taste of New Orleans wherever they may roam.

Formed by former Dracula’s long time Guitarist and Musical Director David Kume, Slips and the F.W.’s have gradually recruited musicians to their act featuring past members of the Dracula’s cast/crew and special guests to enhance their unique sound.

Presented by the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club
