    "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 the first few years since their formation, they've experienced some success extending beyond their hometown. In 2016, the band's original, debut album reached the top 40 of iTunes' "New Country Music" chart for several weeks the month of its release (February 2016); their touring schedule has found them with regular performances at iconic roots venues and festivals throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and beyond, opening for roots greats such as Grammy award-winning Dom Flemons (co-founder of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), Larry Keel, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Hackensaw Boys, and more; and most recently, the band achieved several coveted musical honors from their homestate, including VEER Magazine's "Best Americana Band", and a headlining performance in NPR member station host Paul Shugrue's widely acclaimed Out of the Box Concert Series. They've even founded a successful roots music festival in their hometown that boasts national, regional, and local acts, and thousands of attendees of all ages. The band is currently entering the studio to record their sophomore release (slated to be released in the fall of 2018).

    "...potpourri of folk/country/bluegrass sounds and textures, quick and with well-written songs. Their Jamboree is the real deal and a whole lot of fun."
