George Washingmachine Quartet
Australian multi-instrumentalist George Washingmachine washes away the dust of everyday life. When it comes to knuckle-busting feats on a violin, George doesn’t play second fiddle to anyone. Washingmachine’s Stuff Smith influenced violin playing, eccentric and swinging vocals, and his great band have electrified audiences throughout Europe and Asia.
Performances in Malaysia, France, Holland, UK, Germany, Sweden, Finland, etc., and continues to appear at all the major jazz and arts festivals in Australia.
The multi-faceted Washingmachine has had a vast and varied career in the entertainment business. As a child he trained for 7 years as a classical violinist, leaving that behind to form a rhythm and blues band as guitarist, until 1984, when he moved to Sydney and started playing jazz fiddle with The Conway Brothers Hiccup Orchestra. Since that time George has performed in countless bands and productions as a musician, actor and comedian both on stage and on screen.
