About The Band
Jumptime is a group of professional musicians brought together by Harmonica Virtuoso Will Rhodarmer to play their blend of Swing or "Jump" Blues and Chicago Blues.
Will has been a Blues Harmonica player for over 30 years and a main stay in the Nashville Blues community. His first call was to another Nashville main stay , Blues guitarist Harry Dial. Harry's style is described as "Grown man Blues". He is a powerhouse player and force of nature.
Will and Harry added Geoff Newhall on Bass. Geoff has worked with Rufus Thomas, Bo Diddley and Snooky Prior, just to name a few, and has been a key figure in the Nashville Blues scene for over 30 years. Dave Agerholm has played drums with Chuck Berry , Carey Bell, and The Babe Pino Band out of Boston . He moved to Nashville and is a key Blues drummer on the scene. Rounding out the line up is Shawn Starski. Shawn has worked with Jason Ricci and was a key member in his band The New Blood . The pairing of these two guitar players with the raw intensity of Will's Harmonica coupled with this driving and dynamic rhythm section puts JUMPTIME in a category all their own
JUMPTIME is a band .........and an event.
