Hot and sweet, their early jazz and country repertoire paints America’s story from New Orleans’ brothels to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78’s, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.
Deeply rooted in their love for early swing, blues, and old time country, Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals, re-imagining American roots music with both power and tenderness. Recognized as the region’s “Best Traditional Folk Band” at the 2013 Washington Area Music Awards, the Bumper Jacksons have positioned themselves squarely at the helm of the young roots music scene in DC and Baltimore, pioneering a new, fresh take on American music.
Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone’s invited and the dance floor never sleeps.
