Heading Into Our 16th Year!


As we have entered into unprecedented and uncertain times with COVID-19, we agree with, and will abide by, all steps that are being taken to ensure the safety and health of our families, friends and fans.

As progress is made on vaccines and transmission rates drop, there is hope that the live music scene will once again rise to its glory of years past. We hope, and plan, to be a part of this in a safe and respectful manner.  We hope you will join us.  

Although 2020 or 2021 wasn't what we, or anyone, had planned, we have thankfully and successfully emerged on the other side of a very different and challenging year.  Looking forward to a much brighter 2022, the 16 year Anniversary for JUMBOshrimp, we are hopeful that we will rejoin with all of you face-to-face and look forward to gigging full-speed ahead as a duo again, playing the music we love for the fans we love.  We look forward to sharing a drink with all of you to celebrate getting through such tough times together.  

We know things are slow-going for the moment and that gigs on our calendar are tentative and completely dependent upon the times that are upon us, but we remain positive and hopeful.  

We commit to all of you that we will make our collective safety a priority.  If we stick to the advice of the experts, we truly believe we can party as hard as ever while keeping us all safe and healthy, ensuring we're all sticking around for future gigs and fun times!

Throughout the past 16 years, local businesses and all of you, our fans, have supported JUMBOshrimp and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  And as soon as we are able, we look forward to celebrating with you all year long!

During these times, remember to be kind to one another; we are all in this together.

Peace and love to all.

~ Tom & Ian




THANKS TO YOU… our family, friends, the local Taverns, Restaurants, Businesses, Festival Organizers and EVERYONE who has decided to spend their time with us at a gig.

Your support has allowed us to be
DOIN’ IT FOR (more than) A DECADE!


WOW!  2020 AND 2021... what is there to say?  Such an unbelievable and tragic year for so many.  No matter who or where you are, we were ALL personally impacted by the pandemic.  A time of uncertainty gave way to times of reflection.  Despite the tragedy and turmoil, perhaps the year provided for us renewed focus on that which is most important.  Each other.  

With that said, let's take a look back in time...

What a whirlwind schedule we had in 2019!  Over 100 gigs!  YOWZA!  

Our 10-year celebration “tour” back in 2016 gave us the opportunity to perform for, and hang with, so many friends… die-hard fans, familiar faces, faces we hadn’t seen in a while and many new faces.  Continuing our gig schedule throughout 2017, 2018 and 2019 provided for us more of the same.  We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to share such fun times with all of you.  We had a blast!  We hope you did, too!

We love, and appreciate, the opportunity to play live music in so many wonderful places.  We are honored that you allow us to bring our music into your taverns, your festivals, your private events and celebrations, your homes, your lives.   We couldn’t do this JUMBOshrimp thing without you.  And we are truly grateful and appreciate that you continue to support us.  

We would be remiss if we didn’t thank our families for being so forgiving, allowing us the time away from home to do this music thing that we do.

As we enter into our 16th year, we hope that you will continue to join us for more music and more fun throughout 2021.

Thank you for making us the BIGGEST little band in Rochester, NY!
