"Bluegrass, Country, or Western Swing, acoustic music is our thing"
HomeMade Jam has been playing the Northern Nevada area since 2003.
Their eclectic mix of tunes covers a broad spectrum from driving banjo & fiddle
tunes to tender laments, from Irish ballads to Western Swing. They'll play
traditional bluegrass, countrygrass, cajungrass, popgrass, rockgrass,
highwaygrass, railroadgrass, airplanegrass, spiritualgrass, hippiegrass,
Beatlegrass, soonergrass, latergrass, and, of course, what band would be
complete without a nod to O Brother Where Art Thou?-grass!
Anchored by Tom's rock solid bottom end & Kenny's diverse percussion,
balanced by Ron's broad range of guitar magic, and capped off with Jim &
Rick's eccentric instrumentals, all the boys take a turn at the center mic. Ask
Tom for "A Good Man Like Me," or Jim for the "Milk Cow Blues." Get Kenny to
sing "Kathiann" or Ron to tell you about "The Train That Carried My Girl From
Town." And until you've heard Rick sing "Carolina In the Pines" or "New Mexico
Rain" you're not yet ready to die and go to heaven!
"It is easy to see why HomeMade Jam's music is called "Bluegrass and Beyond" when you
look at the musical influences on these talented musicians. Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt & Earl
Scruggs, Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, Michael Martin Murphy, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band…
O.K., no surprises there. But how about Junior Huskey, the Grateful Dead, Bob Wills, and the
Beatles! That’s why if you’re looking for an eclectic mix of musical styles blended into an
acoustic performance, you'll enjoy seeing
HomeMade Jam"……NNBA News
