This Friday at Smiths Olde Bar, The Jompson Brothers take the stage. Show starts at 8:00 p.m. and tickets are $10 in advance!
The Jompson Brothers were born in a garage in Nashville, TN as a result of late-night jam sessions between Chris Stapleton (vocals, guitar) and Greg McKee (guitar). Bard McNamee (drums) and J.T. Cure (bass) were soon added to the equation, more jamming ensued, and the band was complete. In September of 2010, the band was invited by Zac Brown Band to come along as a performer on the Sailing Southern Ground Cruise.
Their self-titled debut (produced by Frank Rogers) was released in the Fall of 2010 and has drawn comparisons to Led Zeppelin, Gov’t Mule, and Drive-By Truckers. The band has begun 2011 by playing shows all around the Southeast to eager and enthusiastic crowds.
