The House Jumpers bring you authentic up-tempo blues from America’s Heartland. The band’s great vocal melodies, big guitars, and jumpabilly grooves are designed for dancing.
This music was born in American cities such as Memphis, New Orleans, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Kansas City. Early versions of jump blues featured horns, but well-known guitarists, such as T-Bone Walker, pioneered the addition of electric guitar to swing and jump music after WWII. Rockabilly music emerged during the same time through the marriage of rural country music to blues and swing rhythm. A common thread in jump blues and rockabilly is often humorous lyrics—music that doesn’t take itself too seriously. This recording was done on a Studer 24 track analog deck.
"The House Jumpers are boldly American with flavors and textures as varied as traveling Route 66 from Chicago to L.A."--Richard Hemphill, DeSoto Winesong
