… and then there were the Whips
Willie & the Whips joined up right around 2014 along a mission to  learn and transmit the blues, to make good music together for people to dance and listen to.  We are both direct and indirectly inspired by Slim Harpo, Mississippi Fred McDowell, RL Burnside, Jr Kimbrough, Johnny Shines, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed and many more of y’all that like to stomp and holler.

We love to play for you and are happy members of the Washington State Blues Society which holds great events weekly in the Seattle area!!
