Jumpin Jon on guitar, saxophones, lapsteel, and vocals

"The Jivemasters" play an eclectic blend of Soul, R&B, and Jump Blues with emphasis on strong lead and harmony vocals. Members of the band have toured with national acts such as "The Elvin Bishop Band," "The Drifters, "Clarence Gatemouth Brown," and "The Platters." They also have been members of many local bands like "Soulicious," "The Swingin' Marmalukeys," and "The Revelators."

We perform as a trio or a quartet depending on the venue and the budget and are at home on large concert stages, festivals, night clubs, cafes, weddings, wineries, or even in someone's living room for a private party.
