Stutterin’ Jimmy & The Goosebumps @ Alluvial
Don’t miss this double feature of groovy swamp soul storytelling, improvisation, and raucous classic country hooks with Stutterin’ Jimmy & The Goosebumps with Fred Love & The Bakersfield Brawl.
Born and raised in Iowa, singer Jimmy Enos, the fearless leader of the Goosebumps, came onto the Des Moines music scene by performing at jam sessions at the legendary club, Blues on Grand. He has lived with a debilitating stutter his whole life, but it magically disappears when he sings. Jimmy was often misjudged due to the persistent impediment and he spent many years struggling to be recognized as the intelligent and compassionate human that he is.
Fred Love is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Ames, Iowa. He released his debut solo album, “Lily of the Valley,” in 2017. Previously, he played guitar and sang in the band the Colt Walkers. A native of an isolated farm town, Fred has always thought of his music as an extension of the most primal forms in the American songbook. Joined by drummer Cal Rebuhn and bassist Pat Blair, Fred Love and the Bakersfield Brawl offers an electrified shot of cowpunk, honky tonk and Americana.
