Playing many,many live shows near their home in Brooklyn has served the roots-rock band Jumbo Brown very well.
Their song “Ain’t Nothing Wrong” ia a woozy, honky-tonk ode to the simple joys of life and good times. There is loose feel that fits perfectly on a back porch or in a crowded bar. The video for the song ain’t nothing fancy , but it does reflect perfectly that joy and communal spirit.
Of the video the band says: “We shot the video footage live, without a sync track with Rob Langevin (director) at our buddy’s birthday party, Skinny Dennis (Home venue, Willamsburg 152 Metropolitan Ave.) and Randolph Brooklyn (where the piano was located). The song’s about having a good ole time with friends, enjoying the simpler pleasures in life. Scotty D. (New Orleans native frontman) wanted to release the song before Labor Day weekend, because we all kept finding ourselves singing the song around BBQ grills, Bon fires, and rooftop singalongs.”
“Side note, the little boy in the video is a staple at their Skinny Dennis shows, as he dances, plays tambourine, and event duets vocally when the group plays crowd favorites like “Harlem River Blues” by Justin Townes Earle.”
Their new album, American Primitive, will be out December 2nd.
