The Busted Jug Band (Plymouth)

January 20 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm

The Busted Jug Band’s show is a hilarious romp through time featuring group vocals, swinging rhythms and novel instrumentation. Played by five men in top hats, derbies and garish suits; inspired by Black American music of the early 20th Century; the group features novel instruments — often homemade, such as washboard, washtub bass, rhythm bones, banjo-ukuleles, bicycle horns, modified kazoos and – yes – rubber chickens. The BJB plays music of classic jugsters like the Memphis Jug Band, plus a mix of obscure swing, blues and novelty music. The Busted Jug Band have produced entertaining “silent music videos” for songs featured on their debut, eponymous album. They even have their own comic book (!) featuring band members “Smiling Pee-Wee Hernando,” “Early Bird,” “Kayola O’La,” “Lefty Boom-Boom” and “Rude Boy,” as well the anthropomorphized “Phil the Jug.” (In this way, the band stayed active during the pandemic, if only in the second dimension!)
