The Bumptet Launches New Bi-Weekly Residency at Shine Cafe Photo by Patricia Kelley

Local groove masters The Bumptet are kicking off a new residency at Shine Cafe this week that looks to get you through the mid-week hump with a healthy dose of jazz and funk. “Humpday Funk” officially launches this Wednesday, Sept. 14 and will continue every second and fourth Wednesday after that. The shows will be free with music running from 8–10:30 p.m. and all ages are welcome. The Bumptet is a high-energy Sacramento-based funk/jazz fusion band started by bassist, composer and arranger Jonathan Stoyanoff. A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Stoyanoff has played and/or shared the stage with such greats as Larry Coryell, B.B. King, Joe Craven, Robert Cray and Huey Lewis, and he’s even played such prestigious festivals as Monterey Jazz, the New Orleans Jazz Festival and High Sierra. I don’t mean to get all name drop-y on you, but that’s just a really legit resume right there! Shine is a chill spot to grab a local brew and catch live music, so mark your calendars for every second and fourth Wednesday (Sept. 14, Sept. 28, Oct. 12, Oct. 26, etc.) and go get your mind blown by The Bumptet (and eventually rotating guests) for the low price of free. Learn more at or Shine is located at 1400 E St. Sacramento.
