The Jake Leg Jug Band

The Jake Leg Jug Band 1

The Jake Leg Jug Band bring you the authentic sounds of 1920’s and 30’s Americajazz, bluesgospel, ragtime – and put their own twist on it. Quickly gaining a reputation as a lively, feel-good band, their performance at the Congleton Jazz & Blues Festival drew the comment:

‘Their image, style and performance was wonderful and you really did buy into the prohibition era feel of their set….wonderful sounds!’

The band’s debut album Cotton Mouth was released in February 2013 on both CD and 10″ vinyl format to critical acclaim. Its success led to them signing a recording contract with Lake Records – recording their new album Next Stop! as part of their Vintage Recording Project.
