Show Notes

The Stumpknockers are a group of local weirdos who play a blues-folk-rock mishmash of fun. They began as a group of friends who met weekly for jam sessions, and they stumbled into becoming an actual band when people started asking them to play at events. They play a mix of originals and traditional Americana and Blues. Several members are formerly of Crash Jam and all are also members of Rebecca Sunshine Band.

Rebecca Sunshine Band plays fun, interactive music that will get everyone singing and dancing! Kids get to sing and play along with family friendly new tunes and old favorites; the band brings instruments for everyone to play. Rebecca Sunshine Band formed from a group of friends who love getting together for a weekly jam session in Rebecca's living room. The band loves playing music of all kinds, but kids are the most fun audience of all!
