Virginia rockabilly band Jumpin’ Jupiter has been entertaining the DC region for decades! They are always a welcome sight — and sound! — and never more so as area clubs begin to carefully welcome the return of bands to their stages.

Jumpin’ Jupiter next rocks down The Birchmere on Saturday, July 18.

Jumpin’ Jupiter includes Jay Jenc on vocals, Louie Newmeyer on upright bass, Doug Hoekstra on drums, and Patrick Cavanaugh on guitar.

“Whether playing at a backyard bar-b-que or with some national act in a great big fancy club, these stripped-down, psychobilly cowpunks have found a home here on Earth. A home in the hearts of all of those folks out there who haven’t forgotten how much fun good ol’ American music is, even when you’re not paying attention!” the Rockabilly Hall of Fame proclaimed.
