On Saturday, February 10th, The Jethros take the stage at the Blue Moon Coffeehouse in Rockland. The Jethros are a New Bedford based band whose sound is a mixture of string band, New Orleans jazz band and klezmer. Here’s how they describe themselves: “The Jethros were born of a common friendship with their friends and mentors, Mary and Jethro Jethro. The current family tree goes like this: Homer Jethro (Tom Allen) sings and plays guitar, banjo, and mouth organ; Rufus Jethro (Rick Smith) sings and plays trumpet, trombone, and guitar, Boney Jethro (Jonathan Danforth) whistles and plays fiddle, bones, and a variety of hand and foot percussion; and Gaston Jethro (Matthew Ryckebusch) plays bass as though it were 7 different instruments. Other family members include Chester Jethro, Dug Jethro, Lionel Jethro, and Rocket Science Aztec Brain Surgery Jethro.”  As you can probably see, a Jethros show is a unique combination of loads of personality and incredible instrumental talent. You’ll be glad you came!

Tickets are $10 at the door. The address is 45 Webster Street, Rockland, MA.  The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and there’s an open mic in between sets by the band so bring along your instruments.You can check out the band’s Facebook page or listen to them on Spotify and YouTube.
