About Jumpstart

JumpStart was formed  8 years ago after an  M.I.T. contra dance when Gene (bass), Paul (fiddle) , and Victor (piano) decided to continue what had been a chance grouping.  Then in January of 2008, Paul took over the Mill City Dance in Manchester, NH, and JumpStart became the house band, with a different guest musician and caller each month.

In their real lives, Gene is a computer programmer for Intel; Paul is a Professor of English at Rivier College; Victor has a background in classical music and teaches piano in Lexington, MA.
