Parrish Ellis’ newest project – The Jukebox Jumpers – is a return to the his abiding passion for country blues and African American vernacular musical styles. Using piedmont and delta blues traditions as a launching pad, his performances expand into classic southern soul from Memphis and New Orleans, as well as Chicago blues and early rock n’ roll. Additionally, he writes original songs inspired by mining the those deep musical veins. He sings and plays guitar/bass parts while simultaneously playing two drums with his feet. Half of the gigs he is joined by Steve Trismen on fiddle, and the other half by Jim Aaron on harmonica.
