an old, once hugely successful Chesterfield brewing company.

Every good band needs good deps to call on from time to time. Washington Whirligig is no exception. With Rob's drum seat being such a tough one to fill
we are very lucky to have one of the finest drummers on the current circuit as a friend of the band. Dave Eyre is respected across many genres of music and is also the managing director of Hardcase International Limited, the world’s most highly recognised and in demand range of rigid plastic protective cases for drums and percussion instrumentation - a proud British company with it's head office and manufacturing base in Chesterfield, Debyshire.
Dave has very kindly supplied us with a number of their superb wheeled equipment boxes, resplendent in our favoured regal purple, to protect our equipment on the road.
We are very grateful to Dave, his wife Annie and everyone at HARDCASE INTERNATIONAL LTD in Chesterfield for their continued support of Washington Whirligig, and we heartily recommend their products to all working musicians from all genres across the globe.
