    THE JAKE LEG JUG BAND

    The Jake Leg Jug Band bring you the authentic sounds of 1920’s and 30’s America – Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Ragtime – and put their own twist on it. Songs of murder, betrayal, gambling, liquor and redemption.

    Signing to one of the UK’s most prestigious Jazz labels ‘Lake Records’ they recorded albums as part of the ‘Vintage Recording Project’ essentially recording all live around ribbon microphones, as it would have been back in the 1930’s. Four albums released in five years; ‘Cotton Mouth’, ‘Next Stop!’ ‘Everythin’s Jake’ and ‘Break a Leg’ all met with rave reviews.

    “A masterpiece of nostalgic music. The band display real virtuosity and create a wonderful sound that will be hard for any other band to repeat” – Folk North West

    “Swinging like a barn door in a Texas breeze, the album shows the tightness of a band that have spent many years on the road” – Fatea​

    “A fine feast of good-timing jug band music, blues, vintage jazz and hokum with a nicely humorous attitude” – Blues News (Norway)
