Time Jumpers play Sept. 16
The Time Jumpers land on the Farthing Auditorium stage Friday, Sept. 16, jumpstarting Appalachian State University’s 2011-12 Performing Arts Series. The show starts at 8 p.m.
Known for their irresistible swinging rhythm, soulful singers and brilliant soloists, The Time Jumpers have been creating Western swing music for nearly 10 years with a current roster that encompasses some of Nashville’s elite musicians, including Vince Gill, “Ranger Doug” Green, Dawn Sears, Kenny Sears, Paul Franklin, Andy Reiss, Joe Spivey, Rick Vanaugh, Dennis Crouch, Jeff Taylor and Larry Franklin.
Their individual recording and performing credits cover virtually the entire history of country music, ranging from Slim Whitman to Carrie Underwood, and their members have recorded extensively with a wide breadth of artists, from Barbra Streisand to Megadeth.
The group of musicians has evolved from casual jam sessions at the Grand Ole Opry to performing on the main stage. They have been nominated for two Grammy Awards and have also won awards from the Association of Western Artists and the Western Music Association.
As a band, they’ve been sought out to record with artists like Vince Gill, Amy Grant and John Anderson.
Performing every Monday night at the legendary Station Inn in Nashville, The Time Jumpers draw audiences from all over the world, including a diverse array of stars, such as Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Buffet, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon, Bonnie Raitt, Reba McEntire and countless others.
Advance tickets are $28 for adults, $16 for students ages 6 through 18, $15 for Appalachian State students and $10 for children 5 and younger.
