Mount Rainier, MD: The Bumper Jacksons descend on Mount Rainier October 3, 2014 with a an evening of music and dancing at Joe’s Movement Emporium.
Deeply rooted in their love for early swing, blues and old time country, the Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals, re-imagining American roots music with both power and tenderness.

Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, the Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone’s invited and dance floor never sleeps!
The evening begins at 7:00pm with a FREE Swing Dance lesson by Tom Koerner of Gottaswing then the performance (music & dancing!) by the Bumper Jacksons at 8:00pm. Tickets are $15 each.
