This is the Stompers big summer show at our favorite hometown venue-3 Brothers Deli and Brewhouse right on the square in downtown Murfreesboro. Our local shows are always full of surprises so don't miss this one!
The Jake Leg Stompers had a great March! Between launching our new record, “Up to No Good” at a sold-out Station Inn show, to playing a great festival in Marietta OH to packing the house in Woodbury for our Vaudeville Circus, we’ve really been riding high! But what we’ve REALLY been looking forward to is letting our garters down and getting our ya-ya’s out at our favorite hometown bar-3 Brothers Deli and Brewhouse at their NEW location on the square in downtown Murfreesboro (114 N Church St, Murfreesboro, TN 37130) at 9 pm this coming Friday, April 5th! Admission is free and the beer and food is great! We’ll have copies of the new CD and as always, we’ve got new songs and a few surprises in store, so come out and help us celebrate the Stompers inaugural show at the new 3 Brothers!
The people demanded to be heard! The Governor decreed a proclamation! But despite their efforts, The Village Idiot Society of Middle TN nonetheless is proud to announce the RETURN of the Vaudeville Circus and Jugband Review on March 29th, at 7:30 pm at the Arts Center of Cannon Co in Woodbury, TN! The show will be anchored by Murfreesboro’s inimitable minstrel’s of musical mayhem, The Jake Leg Stompers, including vaudeville blues diva Lela Mae Smith! The Stompers are fresh from their “Don't Follow Us” Scared-Straight tour of the Correctional Facilities of TN in support of their brand new CD Up to No Good. Expect heavy doses of Chicken-Fried, Pre-War, Hokum-Billy Jugband music of the variety that makes you want to get up and shake your TDOC-issued baggy orange pajamas! In keeping with the fine traditions of a true Vaudeville Circus, the Stompers will be joined onstage by Cannon Co.’s own Tom Foolery and his Eggplant Faerie Players, who bring years of professional experience in the fine arts of juggling, unicycle, stilt-walking, general hilarity, major mirth and corporal punishment (by appointment only). Rounding out the Vaudeville Circus will be the incomparable Leela Sophina, Queen of the Air, on her burlesque trapeze! Last, but not least, we feel obligated to warn the general public that, appearing onstage for the first time ever in Middle TN, will be the most terrifying creature you have ever seen at a show of this kind! A genuine, 6 ft. tall, 220 pound MAN EATING CHICKEN! The management of the theater is NOT responsible for any physical or emotional trauma caused by a close encounter with this horrifying creature! Come see it IF YOU DARE! Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and students. The Arts Center is located on 1424 John Bragg Highway, just west of the town of Woodbury, approximately 20 minutes from Murfreesboro, Manchester, and McMinnville and one hour southeast of Nashville. Office hours are 10:00a.m. to 4:00p.m., Monday through Saturday. For reservations or more information call 615-563-(ARTS) 2787 or 1-800-235-9073. The theater has a maximum capacity of 225 and many seats will be filled with season ticket holders, so call and make your reservation early to guarantee you won't miss it! So what is a Vaudeville Circus and Jugband Review all about anyway you ask? Well, here's a small taste from a performance in Cookeville, TN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjZW0_Hk538
The Jake Leg Stompers invite you to the Station Inn this coming Saturday, March 9th at 9 pm as we launch our latest (and best!) record, Up to No Good. The doors open at Nashville's world-famous home of traditional music at 7 pm and it's on a first come basis. The new album has everything from low-down Delta blues to bawdy Vaudeville to Memphis Jug Band music to Gullah ring shouts and Hollywood gospel. In other words, it encompasses the entirety of the Chicken-Fried, Pre-War, Hokum-Billy Jug music genre. And in keeping with our previous 3 releases, the album artwork is second-to-none! Up to No Good was recorded on vintage microphones to analog tape at Fry Pharmacy Studios and consists of songs that your grandparents were forbidden to listen to, so needless-to-say, both the Stompers and their parole officers are pretty proud of it! This is our first album release since the incomparable Lela Mae Smith joined the Stomper Family and it marks her recording debut. She brings forth the sound and spirit of the 20's/30's era divas like Bessie Smith and Ella Fitzgerald as no one else singing today! If you've not had the opportunity to hear Lela Mae live, this is your big chance. Stompers' founding member Junior Socrates Cottenberry is also flying in from the West Coast to bring tuba, trombone and accordion and a version of "Mackie Messer" that has to be heard to be believed. It's been awhile since the Jake Leg Stompers have played the Station Inn, so we're primed for a party! Stompers shows at the Station Inn are always marked by high-energy music and unpredictable surprises. While we might not necessarily be on our best behavior, we guarantee you that it'll be the show you don’t want to miss in 2013!
