Building our Line-Up!
First things first...... We just have to send out a HUGE, heartfelt thank you to our first 15 backers! Talk about crazy! These great folks have got to be some really faithful live music fans to jump on board with us without even knowing for sure who's going to be on our line-up! THANK YOU!!! And equally faithful are the great musicians who are submitting their bands for our line-up! Thanks to all of you who want to be a part of the first Jubilo Music & Arts Festival! Keep those submittals coming! (Instructions are on both of our Facebook pages.) It's going to be a wild ride!
Our First Five ....
Hailing from western New York, Big Leg Emma is an institution for high quality, original, Americana Roots Rock music. Based in traditional music like folk, bluegrass, country, along with some funky psychedelic and contemporary rock, BLE is a high-powered, eclectic, music making machine. Throw in some thought provoking songwriting and harmonies and you have a one of a kind equation that is unique, timeless, and infectious!
Born into this world as the passionate love child of Kevin and Robin Dalton, Faubush Hill stands above the frostline in Southern Kentucky, providing not only the foundation for the Dalton’s home, but lending its name to this great band’s progressive mix of rock, blues, country, bluegrass and roots music.
The irreverent bunch of crazies known as The Sooners is a tried and true staple on the Central Kentucky music scene. With their great mix of metal, country and rock, this wild band of partying fools is sure to bring its own party to Jubilo!
Like a phoenix, The Mojos rose from the ashes of the Mojo Filter Kings, a popular regional 1990s band. Since getting together around the turn of the century, The Mojos have played the region anew, entertaining crowds in Lexington, Hazard, Richmond, Florence and the Mardi Gras scene in New Orleans. Each member brings his own influence to generate an original sound you won't hear anywhere else.
The Barry Mando Project has some of the best musicians Lexington has to offer. The trio is comprised of Danny Williams on Electric Baritone Mandolin and Vocals, Danny Cecil on Acoustic and Electric Basses and Paul Deatherage on Drums and Percussion. The eclectic mix of Funk, Jazz, Hip Hop, Neo-Soul, Rock, Electronica and World Music makes BMP a standout in Kentucky’s best music scene!
