JumpStarters Highlights​ from 2015-2020

Click Pix for link

Some call it Dancing Blues, Blues with a Beat, Jumpin' Blues, Roots Rock or Rockabilly. This music hides under many different styles and formats of American music. The common thread is it makes you move. It could be shuffling your feet at a concert or full on Swing dancing, this music makes you move. The #1 purpose of this band is to play a style of Blues that encourages this behavior.  So bring your dancing shoes and join the fun.
