Lane Series presents: Bumper Jacksons

Apr 21, 2017
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Music Bldg A200 (Recital Hall)

If you've ever been clubbing in New Orleans, you've seen bands like the Bumper Jacksons. These musicians are young and incredibly talented, and they perform old-time jazz, blues, and swing music with originality and verve. Boldly and elegantly balancing tradition and their own unique sound, the Bumper Jacksons have been honored as the 2015 "Artist of the Year" and "Best Folk Band" at the Washington Area Music Awards. From Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday classics, to original tunes in a honky-tonk vein, the Bumper Jacksons are such fun - their peppy vocals, bluesy clarinet solos, and funky pedal steel guitar keep things rolling right along. (If you loved Hot Club of Cowtown, these guys will be right up your alley!)

Price: $25 adult / $10 student
