Overview

The main premise and philosophy of Jumpstart is to provide the most versatile musical entertainment in the Austin and surrounding areas by covering and adapting popular dance material from all eras and genres for live performance.

Jumpstart’s mission and philosophical characteristics are achieved by maintaining a full compliment of versatile musicians consisting of

1. A solid Rhythm Section – bass guitar, drums/percussion, guitar and keys/synthesizers;
2. An all-embracing Horn Section – saxophones, trombone and trumpet; and,
3. Dynamic Vocals – two female lead, male lead, and added vocal accompaniment.

The on-stage interaction of all these elements and musicians creates the Jumpstart sound. The sound and style of Jumpstart is true to the performance music; true to their many musical styles; and true delivery through high energy to their audiences.
