Joe & The Jumping Jacks back on Bassac!
Joe & The Jumping Jacks are always looking to carve a new niche in the Cambodian music scene. When the cool dudes who run Hangar 44, Meat & Drink, The Library (and several other hip bars along Bassac Lanes ) were searching for a live band to brighten up their weekends, they talked to Joe!
There is nothing standard about this set-up. The ‘stage’ is an empty shop unit which is the same size as a small garage and, bedecked with rusted corrugated iron, looks like one. The stage lighting is by handheld industrial lamps. The audience is a heady brew of expats and visitors mingling with the local families and children. Everybody dances.
The Jumping Jacks team bring all their own equipment – drums, amplifiers, PA system, etc etc etc. For the duration of the gig, Bassac Lanes is transformed into a ‘Garage Rock’ party!
Somehow, this formula really works well and each Jumping Jacks gig is a massive street party. See you at Bassac Lanes on Saturday the 26th of March at 8pm for the next show!
