* Thank-You MerleFest *

This Jumpin’, Swingin’ Blues quartet is playing songs made to get your feet moving. The JumpStarters feature upbeat songs that pull styles from West Coast Swing, Chicago Blues, Memphis Rockabilly and a big dose of Chuck Berry. This style of music was rock-n-roll before it had a name. These music veterans are ready to introduce this style to a whole new group of people. So bring your dancing shoes and be prepared to Shake Yo' Shimmy.

Smitty and the JumpStarters  would like to thank MerleFest and all the folks who joined us at the Dance Stage for the 2018 Festival. This was an incredible opportunity to share our music with the many folks who know what the MerleFest experience is like. We believe that Doc and Merle were tapping their toes with us.
