Solomons, MD – Everyone is invited to join the party with Bumper Jacksons on Friday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Harms Gallery at Calvert Marine Museum. Tickets are $10 each online at www.bit.ly//MaritimeConcerts; $15 at the door (cash or check). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with beer, wine, and water available for sale.
The show is back by popular demand after last year’s sold out! Bumper Jacksons is deeply rooted in their love for jazz, blues, swing, and old-time country. Acclaimed as the region’s “Best Traditional Folk Band” at the 2013 Washington Area Music Awards, Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals and unafraid to scrap together new sounds from the forgotten late 70s. They perform traditional sounds of America, heart-wrenching and youthful, and always in the spirit of raw adventure. The group released their newest album “Too Big World” in July 2015. Hear it now at http://bumperjacksons.bandcamp.com/
The young talent is Jess Eliot Myhre (clarinet, vocals and washboard), Chris Ousley (guitar, vocals), Alex Lacquement (bass, harmony vocals), Dan Cohan (suitcase percussion, snare), Dave Hadley (pedal steel), and Brian Priebe (trombone, harmony vocals).
Mark your calendar for the last show of the 2015 Maritime Performance Series for Friday, December 18 as EVA performs The Turning of the Year. The Maritime Performance Series is sponsored in part by Holiday Inn Solomons.
