visit Sunset Road

The Bumper Jacksons will stop by Sunset Road this Friday, March 22, for a visit with host Pete Marshall. The Baltimore duo have two performances in the Central VA, starting with opening for The Revelers on Thursday, March 21, at the Magnolia House.  Then Friday evening they will be at Rapunzel's in Lovingston.


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 latest release, Big Horn Mama.
