This year’s musical camping extravaganza will feature 26 musical acts on 3 outdoor and indoor stages, rentable cabins, meal plans, late night jams, kid’s activities, workshops, vendors, parade, plenty of room for camping, nature trails and various on-site recreation amenities and more. Artists are hand-selected from all corners of the USA and beyond, showcasing a variety of musical styles including: Jam, Funk, Bluegrass, Rock & Roll, Blues, Folk, Fusion, Prog, World, Roots, Jazz etc.
Our new venue—Camp Ramblewood—is a 200-acre rustic campground with roots traced back to the Civil War era. This sprawling camp was once a crucial part of the Underground Railroad, and is also a well-documented hot spot for paranormal activity. But beyond all the folklore, you will find a pristine venue that caters to the needs of alternative gatherings, featuring rentable cabins and various on-site recreation amenities. The MOTM12 lineup features bands drawn from 15 different states, plus one international act. Additionally, 13 out of 26 musical acts have never played a Jibberjazz event before. The true spirit of Jibberjazz is alive and well, as we continue on our quest to find the next great sounds that emerge from the abyss!

MIKE DILLON & PUNKADELIC
New Orleans LA
How many artists have been praised a "punk rock provocateur," "jazz vibraphone visionary," and "percussion virtuoso" in the same sentence? There's only one: Mike Dillon. Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Primus, Rickie Lee Jones, Dean Ween Group and Ani Difranco, and collaborations such as Nolatet, Garage a Trois, The Dead Kenny G's, Critters Buggin or bands he has led, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now.
Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, four piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, with notes of country, blues, and funk. With a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State and along their tour routes, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound unique to the Arkansas quartet.
JON STICKLEY TRIO

THE ICEMAN SPECIAL
New Orleans LA
These Big Easy Bombardiers pack an ample amount of audio artillery in their set and you better believe that the Funka-Delic swamp will rain down heavy when they plug in. They combine a sound of dirty funk and delicate groove with elements of disco and rock and roll to create danceable jams with plenty of edge and substance.
Known for their high-energy shows, the band mixes a fierce rhythmic foundation, dual guitar solos, and an Appalachian tinged mix of genres that makes standing still nearly impossible. By focusing on musical intricacy and creating seamless improvisation, Fletcher’s Grove has captured the imaginations of thousands in the Mountain State and beyond.

anywhere brass bands. You can hear this sound all over the world now – from New Orleans to Belgrade, Paris to Cotonou, and right here on the east coast area as well. A major party
alert for this band – Black Masala puts on an amazing, high-energy live show!
Funky, electronic, rock...dance..jazz..sexy..Japanese inspired…well, there's really no way to fully capture the experiences and sounds of MINKA. But if you want to let your imagination run wild...let's pretend some scientists got in the lab and crossed Bowie with Prince, and then sprinkled in some Talking Heads.
Northern New Jersey
The Outcrops bring original blues-infused rock’n’roll. Bryan Schroeder's long flowing lead lines intertwine with Cassidy Rain's vocal phrases to create a very melodic sound with a funk and soul feel that melds beautifully creating the perfect band tag: Rock & Roll, Blues & Soul.
ADVENTURES OF MATTE BLACK
San Glutino NJ
Madison Gerish's philosophical, vulnerable and disarming lyrics dance with Daniel Skinner's subtle yet moving melodies, all while leaving space for their talented caravan of musical comrades. The music is rooted in deep improvisation and an emphasis on being courageous when facing the absurdities of life.
ELECTRIC MOOSE KNUCKLE
3-piece powerhouse featuring Garry Slick and Brett Noel from Dr. Slothclaw, along with Levi Powers bringing the screaming guitar leads. Taking notes from multiple genres and groups, the band delivers mind blowing instrumental originals that seem to defy boundaries, yet keep you dancing with funky grooves and thick bass tones.
Indie Jazz atmospheres with angular Prog rhythms and vintage video game soundtracks with the intensity of robot metal at others. Agent Moosehead has over the years hosted a fluid lineup consisting of some of Philadelphia's most inventive musicians. At their smallest, a trio of guitar, bass, and drums.
