The JackTown Ramblers
Marion - North Carolina - United States

  The JackTown Rambles are a 4-piece American Bluegrass, Swing & Gypsy Jazz band from Morganton, North Carolina. The band formed in 2019 from a collection of “acoustic ramblers” who met through mutual friends and musical interests.  Collectively, they just wanted to do something a little different with their music by melding together traditional bluegrass with sprinkles of swingy feeling tunes, band originals and some gypsy jazz type material just for fun.

     Their unique brand of entertainment fuses solid improvisational instrument leads and traditional bluegrass harmonies with a dose of ignorance in their live sets and a slick delivery of material that will make you want to hoop, holler and come back for more.  Now hailed as 'one of the busiest working bands in western North Carolina' by livemusicasheville.com, The JackTown Rambles have performed over 300 shows and have performed on the Red White and Bluegrass Festival, and at the iconic Isis Music Hall to a sold-out crowds. 

     "The JackTown Ramblers highlight the passion, breadth and inherent musicality of the seasoned musicians who make up this well-oiled and strong-sounding 4-piece bluegrass band. Featuring a delightful mix of the old and new, the scope of songs and the talents of the members keep the listener’s interest and showcase the musicians in good stead. The classic combination of 5-string banjo (Brett Setzer), flat-top guitar (Shannon Leasure), mandolin (Gabriel Wiseman) and string bass (Mike Ramsey), all deftly played and well-balanced in fine form. Exhibiting traits from the 2nd and 3rd generational mix, the band’s formidable material and a delivery style which recalls the timeless wellspring of IIIrd Tyme Out, The Lonesome River Band and J.D. Crowe & The New South"
