The House Jumpers deliver American roots music often referred to as “the blues.” The band’s new album, Foolin’ Around, is scheduled for release on House Rent Records in March 2018. It offers songs in jump, Chicago blues, Bo Didley, early rock & roll, ballad, and American roots genres. New to this release are gospel and New Orleans flavored materials. In our song, Protect the Root, we say, “Willie Dixon said it best, when he said this line: “If you like the fruit, you must protect the root.” We do our best on Foolin’ Around and at our live performances to honor the history of all these incredible styles.
Our influences include material originally recorded from about 1948 to 1960 by artists such as BB King, the Liggins Brothers, Camille Howard, T-Bone Walker, and Jimmy Reed, to name just a few. The House Jumpers cover those great artists and contribute original songs to this wonderful body of American music.
We hope you can catch one of our live performances soon!
