The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn are an acoustic Dixieland, early swing, gospel and blues band and composed of homemade washboard percussion, upright bass, resonator guitar, trumpet with the occasional addition of violin/fiddle & tenor saxophone. Their repertoire of witty songs with moving yet often bawdy lyrics and catchy 4 part vocal harmony always draw large crowds.
