(plus additional fees)
2017 Grammy winners for Best American Roots Song, Kid Sister, The Time Jumpers will make their debut in Springfield featuring country music stars Vince Gill, Kenny Sears and Paul Franklin. The band includes 9 members, each a master of his instrument. They are Vince Gill (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), Brad Albin (upright bass), Larry Franklin (vocals, fiddle), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Kenny Sears (vocals, fiddle), Joe Spivey (vocals, fiddle), Jeff Taylor (accordion, piano) and Billy Thomas (vocals, drum).
The Time Jumpers was established in Nashville in 1998 by an assemblage of high-dollar studio musicians who wanted to spend some spare time jamming with their sonically gifted buddies. The notion of building a rabidly devoted following was the last thing on their minds, but that’s what happened. Pretty soon Monday nights were sounding a lot like Saturday nights—and drawing commensurately lively crowds.
