The Dam Mountain Jam is a new night of music that happens every Thursday at Cactus Jack's Saloon in downtown Evergreen, starting at 9:00. It began as a few friends looking for an outlet for their songwriting and acoustic music, and has quickly grown into the best thing going in Evergreen - a crowd of friends and music lovers keeping things cozy, good beer and good vibes from the friendly folks at Jack's, and best of all, sweet music pouring from the stage all night long, from the simple and soulful to the rockin' and rowdy.
Every week you'll hear Natchez Bound and The Millbridge Brothers. Natchez Bound started off as an acoustic side project of the band Purple Buddha and has grown into a full-blown band with Isaac on guitar and vocals, Michelle on vocals, Stork on bass, Dominick on mandolin, guitar and vocals, Christopher on percussion, and Les on the drum kit.
The Millbridge Brothers are a recently reunited band that started off in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania a few years back and eventually landed in Evergreen. The band is Rob on guitar, banjo, harmonica, and vocals, Dominick on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, John on percussion, keys, and vocals, and Matty on bass. We're really excited to be getting it going again, and soon we'll be playing with Sam on drums. We often have special guests, which in the past have ranged from solo songwriters to bluegrass to funk and jam bands. So far it's been a growing family of musicians and friends, and if you're reading this, that probably includes you, thanks for coming out to party with us. See ya Thursday.
