The Jamblers were born from a Friday night jam at the home of Lou Abbondanzo. We gather around 8 PM and play past midnight. Jeff and Gary drive more than an hour each way just to pick. Every week. We each have our tunes, one after the other, and the solos can, well, go on for a bit. Heck, there are 7 of us. And we ALL pick. Randy Batson is Berklee trained. He and Larry DeJong play in Railroad House. Matt Carlen is a bluegrass veteran. Catch him and Jeff Horton with Wide Open Spaces. Jeff is a RI Bluegrass Hall of Fame(r) and has played the main stage at Joe Val with Northern Lights and The Pegheads (not to mention years of workshops at many festivals, including this one). Pete Fein is fabulous on the ukulele and banjo, and Gary Beekmann is our latest find. We’re enjoying the music with Gary. He adds a lot. 7 players, 6 singers. Come hear our Showcase Set!
