" — these fellas know how to entertain a crowd!" - Charlie Grant, Executive Director, HOPS in the PARK
"[O]ne of the most entertaining bands around!" - Peter Pittman, Owner of Iconic VA Roots Venue: The Hampton Taphouse
“Brackish Water Jamboree is an eclectic mix of foot-stomping bluegrass, old-time folk and classic Americana pulled together with a high-energy performance and one extraordinary stage presence. Brackish Water Jamboree is a band that will bring down the house and bring the audience to their feet time and time again.” - Brenda Barkley, Talent Buyer, Tidewater Friends of Acoustic Music
What do a bunch of beach boys (and gal) know about hillbilly music? Brackish Water Jamboree named their roots-music free-for-all after the swampy confluence from which they hail: Tidewater, Virginia. But in just over three years since their formation, they've experienced some success extending beyond their hometown, being invited to regularly to play the historic Floyd Country Store & Knoxville's iconic WDVX Blue Plate Special; they've shared the bill with roots-greats such as Dom Flemons, Hackensaw Boys, and The Steel Wheels; they took the 2017 VEER music award of "Best Americana Band" for eastern VA; and their self-titled debut album (co-produced by Mark Padgett) reached the top 40 of iTunes' "New Country Music" chart the month of its release (February 2016).
