The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. 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.   Recognized as the region’s “Best Traditional Folk Band” at the 2013 Washington Area Music Awards, the Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals and re-imagining American roots music with both power and tenderness.  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.

If you like the music of Sidney Bechet, Roscoe Holcum, Meschiya Lake, Skillet Lickers, Mississippi Sheiks, Sam Chatmon, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Fats Waller, Madeleine Peyroux, the New Orleans Jazz Vipers, the Smoking Time Jazz Club, Tom Waits, Ethel Waters, Ralph Stanley, the Mills Brothers, Hank Williams
