Bumper Jacksons
Bumper Jacksons
Bumper Jacksons are hot and sweet, painting America's story from the streets of New Orleans to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78's, the Bumper Jacksons elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, playful style. The group began as a duo, a city-meets-country experiment between songstress Jess Eliot Myhre and banjo player Chris Ousley. They hopped on bicycles, touring the country, instruments on their backs, seeking to reimagine roots music. In five short years, Bumper Jacksons grew to a brassy seven-piece, with horns and pedal steel. They've been honored multiple times as the Mid-Atlantic's "Artist of the Year" & "Best Traditional Band" at the Washington Area Music Awards. Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone's invited and the dance floor never sleeps.

In the summer of 2006, Alex Thoele and Jon Pickett met while playing guitars around a campfire, high on a mountaintop in Estes Park, CO. The two have been entertaining and writing music since. In 2010, they were joined by mandolin player and fellow midwesterner, Jarett Mason, and shortly after by James Weatherly, the band’s only Colorado native, on banjo.
Chain Station is a 4-piece, high-energy, get ‘em out on the dance floor string band from Denver, Colorado. Their music is well-steeped in Americana roots, with vocal harmonies that are high, lonesome, and tight. Their picking ranges from lightning-fast to mountain mellow. They are a bluegrass band that would satisfy a picky old-timer and delight fans of newgrass, a delicate balance indeed.
They've become known for winning over crowds with creative, fun original songs that flow from the mountains, through them and right back to you. Pure Mountain Music! It's obvious these guys love what they do, engaging their growing fan base with energy and stage antics that guarantee one hell of a night out.
The band’s newest album is “Where I want To Be” October, 2016. In 2015 a live album “Chain Up Volume 1” was released and the debut studio album “Dancin’ With the Law” hit the scene in 2013. Chain Station has directly supported bands such as The Devil Makes Three, The Travelin' McCourys, Sierra Hull, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Todd Snider, Trout Steak Revival, The Railsplitters, Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, Deadphish Orchestra and many more.
This band has been living life through music and adventures together for more than six years. Relentless gigging in their home state of Colorado, the mountain west and the midwest has made this band of brothers one of the tightest and most professional little ragtag pack of muppets on the scene today.
The Mallett Brothers Band
The Mallett Brothers Band
The Mallett Brothers Band is a band from Maine that plays original music. With a unique style that spans across country, rock and roll, Americana and "alt-country" genres, the band has grown a dedicated fan base across the country since releasing their debut record in 2009. With the upcoming release of their fourth studio album, "Lights Along the River," the band continues its rigorous touring schedule (playing upwards of 150 shows a year across the country), and its mission of sending genuine, heartfelt and independent music out into the world.

Over the last 6 years, The Mallett Brothers Band has proven to be an underground powerhouse, constantly touring and building a die hard fanbase across the nation, while still calling the state of Maine their home. With songs that can range from alt country, to americana, honkytonk, jam or roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by folk and singer/songwriter influences as it is by harder rock, twang and psychedelic sounds. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Adam Cogswell on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar, and Andrew Martelle on fiddle and mandolin. It's song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that's equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear.

Since forming in 2009, the band has released four full length albums and toured the country tirelessly. They have provided support for acts ranging from The Josh Abbot Band, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Robison, and the Turnpike Troubadours, to legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and 38 Special. Their touring circuit stretches from the Appalachian to the Rocky Mountains, from Maine to Mississippi, and they've appeared in front of many fine people at some of the finest music venues in the country, including the Continental Club in Austin, the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels TX, the Birchmere in Alexandria VA, the Bluebird in Nashville TN, Meadowbrook Pavilion in NH, and more.

“Lights Along The River,” the most recent release, was recorded in a remote, boat access only location in northern Maine. Many of the songs came out of the touring life, gifts of the road, while many also came from the remote and cold places the band calls home.
