While many folks are familiar with pre-school jams and senior citizen kazoo bands, this style actually has a respected tradition in American Music¡V from rural and street corner groups featuring a jug or washboard to some of the most sophisticated jazz recordings of the 1920¡¦s. The JUG BAND BASH! revives this tradition, featuring unplugged performances of the most electrifying ensembles on today¡¦s jug band scene. Bring your hearing aides +/or ear plugs and join in the grand finale on the instrument of your choice!

The All New Genetically-Altered Jug Band ¡V Through the medium of obscure 20th Century novelty songs and original compositions satirizing modern life, ANGAJB can be described as a traditional jazz with whistles, bells and harmony gargling. Join ¡§Special Ed¡¨ (Ed Light on Vocals, Banjo, Kazoo, and noises), ¡§Bags¡¨ (Richard Howard, on Vocals, Trumpet and Harmonica), ¡§Mister Scratchy¡¨ (Ron Goad on the washboard and all things percussive) and Gutbucketeer (Jim Bunch on washtub bass, jug, and more noises) with guest star, swing violinist Alan Oresky for a slightly skewed good time (www.myspace.com/ANGAJB)

The Wayward Street Players ¡V features Doug Everton on banjo, guitar and vocals like you have never heard, imitating the instruments of the band. A light-hearted mix of riverboat music, Louis Armstrong, and many other influences. With washtub bassist extraordinaire, Wes Butts, and the great Tom Layton on washboard. www.freewebs.com/waywardstreetplayers.
