Australian jazz violinist George Washingmachine, swinging and eccentric singer as well as dazzling violin player, plays his versions of standards and new compositions, with his own blend of string jazz in this electrifying performance.
George 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.
George has toured the world performing in France, Holland, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Germany, Sweden, Finland, etc., and continues to appear at all the major jazz and arts festivals in Australia.
