Baltimore duo the Bumper Jacksons will stop by Jumpin' on the Bed this Saturday for a visit with host David Soyka. Later that night they will be performing at the Whiskey Jar in Charlottesville.


The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Hot and sweet, their trad jazz and pre-war 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.  They recently released their debut self-titled album.
