Jackson Grimm and the band, The Bull Moose Party, met at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC. They started picking tunes together right away. Grimm's songwriting and capability on a variety of instruments enabled him to slip seamlessly into the tight dynamics of the band: Eli Winkenwerder plays the banjo and sings, Colin Martin and Chris Marshall do likewise on guitar and mandolin, Brady Lux adds the fiddle, and Jake Yochem holds it all together with the bass. Come join us for an evening of original and traditional tunes featuring fast picking', tight harmonies, and a whole new batch of songs. The group will have their new album with them along with new merchandise (all artwork done by local artist and fellow Warren Wilson alum, Calder Gladstone) so you will have the opportunity to take the band home with you! Local singer-songwriter Old Sap will be starting the evening off with an opening set."“Hair-raisingly gorgeous” -Diederik van Wassenaer “A very nice debut by an artist who is standing tall on his own two feet” -thenextgig.nl (Dutch)(excerpt from press release)"Jackson Grimm's first full-length release is an authentic insight into the heartache and desolation felt on an exodus from home, both physically and emotionally. This collection of songs, The Bull Moose Party, doesn’t fit easily into one genre. The listener is pushed and pulled — bluegrass, folk, swing — in a manner driven by Grimm’s seductive melodies and lyrics and colored by a forlorn love. His songs run the gamut: a classic country waltz in "If Not For You", a contradictory love song driven by a Beatles-esque melody in "I'd Hold You (But I Don't Wanna Hold You)", and a rousing party-grass song à la Old Crow Medicine Show in "Last Train Home”."
