Jampson Jubilee headlines bill Saturday at Oasis Pub
I'm trying to think of a musical scenario that could NOT unfold at a Jampson Jubilee show. The New London band features five players equally adept at a variety of instruments and, by design, they hop from one to the other —
Wait! I thought of something they can't do. Palestrina's "Etenim Pascha nostrum" (but only because it requires eight voices).
Anyway, the Jubileers write in an astonishing variety of styles, from rock to funk to jam to folk, and allow each member to shine in respective fashion so that —
Wait! I thought of another song they can't do. "The Gates of Delerium" by Yes (but ony because it's irritating).
As I was saying, the Jampson Jubilee are a constant source of surprise and entertainment, and you should see them Saturday when they headline at the Oasis Pub in New London. Opening the show are Yes and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrna.
Just kidding about those support acts. Actually, Burning Sensations and Brian Gore complete the bill.
Jampson Jubilee, 9 p.m. Saturday, Oasis Pub, 16 Bank St., New London; $5; (860) 447-3929.
