BumsA unique, enjoyable blend of bluegrass and jazz. Focused on music from the ’20s to the ’50s, their eclectic interpretations cover blues, swing, rock, and even classical music.
At their shows, teenagers discover music they didn’t know they liked, old men exclaim, “I haven’t heard that song in forever!,” and jazz freaks and casual listeners alike have a good time.
