Invite your friends and family to a watch party!

Based out of Greensboro, the band features upbeat songs that get your feet moving. Their music pulls styles from West Coast Swing, Chicago Blues, Memphis Rockabilly, and a dose of Chuck Berry. The Band features Bryan Smith on vocals and guitar, Steve Blake on Saxophone, Doug Dennis on Bass, and Roy Brown on Drums. The Jumpstarters have played swing dances, clubs and festivals across the Carolinas. They appeared at MerleFest 2018 on the Dance Stage and have been invited back for 2021.

This spring the band released its’ second CD titled “Let’s Get Jumpstarted” recorded at Earthtones Recording Studio in Greensboro. These music veterans are ready to introduce this style to a whole new generation. So be sure to wear your dancing shoes and be prepared to Shake Yo’ Shimmy.
