It’s not often one band’s set allows you to dance the jitterbug and do-si-do. The Bumper Jacksons are wildly eclectic. One minute it’s jubilant horns and swinging rhythms, the next it’s twangy country or a sultry jazz ballad. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78s, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly pay homage to traditional sounds while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.  Their shows are unpredictable, fresh, and lighthearted, with just about every instrument under sun (banjo, pedal steel, washboard, clarinet, kazoo, et al.) making an appearance.
