Jump Blues

Jump Blues is an exploration of the wide-range of eras and styles which encompass the Blues genre, 100 years of American music. That includes Country Blues, Electric Blues, Zydeco, Boogie-Woogie, and Blues Rock, however the common thread will be uptempo tunes which you can dance to and might hear in a Juke Joint or roadhouse. Always seeking national and local Rochester-area talent to share their music LIVE during the show!   Email Dave at (JumpBlues @ wayofm.org)
