Casual attire but it's nice to wear a fedora or something of the 40s-50s era

Description

Stompy Jones showcases vintage jump style rhythm and blues. The band recreates the historic sounds of the 1940s such as shuffle drumming and bounce piano and combines them with a sense of the contemporary. It performs a full calendar of club dates, concerts and festivals throughout California.

Stompy Jones is San Francisco based sextet, renowned for their jumpin’ rhythm, wailing improvisations, hip charm and explosive stage show. Whether appearing at a posh supper club, concert hall, festival or down the road a piece, the solid sounds of these journeymen of jump are delivered in the romping, joyous, overwhelming style of jazz that came to be know as Rock and Roll!
