Jump Little Children
After a long 10 year wait... it's finally here...
THE RETURN OF JUMP LITTLE CHILDREN!
In 1998, during my freshman year of college in Johnson City, TN, some of my new found friends were going wild over this band that was going to be up the road from us playing a show in Boone, NC. I'd never heard of these guys and the description that my friends gave of them didn't seem too flattering, but I figured they had to be worth giving a change given all the hype I was hearing. I felt that if I wanted to get to know any of these new friends I'd surrounded myself with, I needed to jump in the car for a little ride up the NC mountains.
I sure am glad I did. After the show, I decided that I wanted to do what they were doing for the rest of my life. The show they put on was amazing - full of energy and beautiful original music - along with about every instrument I would ever think of, especially a bunch of instruments that I wouldn't expect out of a rock band, including a cello and Irish whistles.
So after their breakup in 2005, myself among many of their long-time fans were longing for a reunion of some sort. Well, looks like we're finally going to get it! This December, I get to take my wife to Charleston, SC for a reunion show that I've been talking about for a very long time, and she'll get a chance to see one of my favorite bands of all time!
