Jamie’s Junk Show with the Deep Banana Blackout horns. You know them from the famed Pickle Barrel happy hour and now for the first time they will be playing at the Charity Challenge. We are psyched to have Jamie’s Junk Show taking the stage and to make their show even better, they’re adding the DBB horns aka Deep Banana Blackout’s own Rob Somerville on sax and Rob Volo on Trombone. Volo also plays bass with JJS, Rounding out the group are lead singer and guitarist Jamie Livesey with Donny Fortin on drums and percussion.

The Junk Show has a groovy acoustic style incorporating Rock, Pop, Reggae and Country. They’re not your typical cover band. They perform energetic, acoustic interpretations of your favorite songs.
