Bumpus (Record Release!)

Bumpus and their powerful brand of soul music channels the uplifting energy of Sly & the Family Stone, the funk of James Brown, and the reflective cool of Marvin Gaye. Led by singers James Johnston, Ava Fain and Tina Howell, they bring together big, funky beats, deep bass, lush JB horns, and a heavy organ sound that results in a high-octane, musical funk frenzy.  Bumpus has shared the stage with many of their heroes. Artists such as Dr. John, War, The Roots, Jurassic 5, Maceo Parker, and Fred Wesley.  The band has performed at the prestigious Jazz Aspen Snowmass Festival alongside Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, and Widespread Panic.  Their fourth and most recent album, All the People, won rave reviews and they’re currently hard at work on their fifth album, Step Sure or Step Aside. Bumpus continues to tour throughout the country, while performing at various venues in Chicago and the Midwest.
