2015 headliner - Newport Jam

2015 has been a big year for Wisconsin's Newport Jam. They played their first shows in Florida, Minnesota, and Iowa, they hosted the 2nd annual Toodeloo Shakedown Fest, and have returned for the third summer of "Newport Jam & Friends at Mama's Garage." Even after all that, there's more: the year still holds a follow-up recording to the 2013 EP "Searching for Substance," more traveling, and more energized performances delivered to fans across Mid-West. Whether they're rocking nostalgic favorites or new original music, get ready for even more face-melting solos and funky bass-lines that make a Newport Jam show a can't-miss experience.
