|History of Performer / Band
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!
Call us for your next party! HomeMade Jam is sure to please.

"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 McCourey, 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
