Bold, elegant and reimagined music from the early days of Americana
7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, Wareham Opera House
The Bumper Jacksons are hot and sweet, painting America's story from the seductive sounds of New Orleans to the hollers of the Appalachian Mountains. Folding together early styles of jazz, blues and country swing, the Bumper Jacksons strike a bold yet elegant balance between paying homage to traditions and fashioning their own unique, DIY sound. Bursting at the seams with rich threads of Americana, their playfully creative originals and reimagined roots music earned them Artist of the Year (2015) and Best Folk Band (2013-2015) at the Washington Area Music Awards. The Bumper Jacksons' hard-driving energy brings you into the center of a party where everyone's invited and the dance floor never sleeps.
