The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Hot and sweet, their trad jazz and pre-war country repertoire paint's America's story from New Orleans' brothels to Appalachian hollers. Each show is raunchy and riotous, with the occasional hush of tenderness. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from a junkyard of forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style.
