Smitty & The JumpStarters

Valdese, NC – Valdese Family Friday Nights Summer Concert series will feature Smitty & The JumpStarters this Friday, August, 25 beginning at 7:00pm, located in the Town Parking area.

This Jumpin’, Swingin’ Blues quartet is playing songs made to get your feet moving. The JumpStarters feature upbeat songs that pull styles from West Coast Swing, Chicago Blues, Memphis Rockabilly and a big dose of Chuck Berry. This style of music was rock-n-roll before it had a name. These music veterans are ready to introduce this style to a whole new group of people. So bring your dancing shoes and be prepared to Shake Yo’ Shimmy.

All these guys have interconnections and common threads. Smitty and the JumpStarters mix these talents into a Dancing Blues Band. “We are excited to welcome Smitty & The JumpStarters to Valdese for the first time”, states Morrissa Angi Community Affairs Director for the Town of Valdese. “We strive to offer a great variety of music for our attendees to enjoy and are happy to bring Smitty & The JumpStarters into the mix for a great night of blues and variety.”

Concessions and 50/50 Raffle will be offered during the concert and Myra’s Classic & Antique Car Cruise In will continue at 6pm. For further information about events in Valdese go to or call 828-879-2129.
