Bumper Jacksons at Dogtown Roadhouse
Fri May 22 – 8 pm – $3
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
