The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) announces that The Time The Time Jumpers Jumpers featuring Dawn Sears, Vince Gill, Kenny Sears and Ranger Doug Green will be performing on SKyPAC’s main stage March 25, 2014. Tickets are available online at TheSKyPAC.com, by phone 270-904-1880 or at the SKyPAC Ticket Office, 601 College Street, Bowling Green, KY.
Vince Gill, 20-time Grammy winner and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame returns to SKyPAC as a member of The Time Jumpers. Gill opened SKyPAC with his sold out performance opening night, March 10, 2012. “Ranger Doug” Green is also making his second appearance at SKyPAC. He is a member of the group Riders in The Sky, who performed at SKyPAC in June 2012.
Tap any member of The Time Jumpers on the shoulder and the face that turns to greet you will be that of one who’s made major contributions to the richness and vigor of country music. The Time Jumpers was established in Nashville in 1998 by an assemblage of high-dollar studio musicians. The notion of building a rabidly devoted following was the last thing on their minds. But that’s what happened.
The Time Jumpers—the band’s new and first album for Rounder Records—is also the group’s first studio project. Their live album—Jumpin’ Time, released in 2007—earned them two Grammy nominations and a high-profile segment on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.
The current edition of The Time Jumpers includes 11 members, each a master of his (and, in one case, her) instrument. Alphabetically—which is the only diplomatic way to present such a group of evenly matched talent—they are Dennis Crouch (upright bass), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), Vince Gill (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars), “Ranger Doug” Green (vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Dawn Sears (vocals), Kenny Sears (vocals, fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle, vocals) Jeff Taylor (accordion, piano) and Billy Thomas (drums, vocals).(thetimejumpers.com)
