JumpStart was formed  6 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.


   Since then Nancy Fiske (clarinet, whistles) has joined, providing a second melody instrument and some added “swing” to the band.


   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; and Nancy is a music teacher at the D.J. Bakie Elementary School in Kingston, NH.
