  • Vintage ‘20’s & ‘30’s Americana
  • Five-piece authentic Jug Band
  • Dressed in Speakeasy style
  • Jazz, Blues, Ragtime & Gospel
  • Music of Fats Waller & The Mississipi Sheiks
  • Fully-equipped with a top-quality PA system

Let the Jake Leg Jug Band whisk you back to the days of the Gatsby-era Speakeasy with a special blend of blues, early Jazz, gospel and rag-time that is as powerful as any moonshine brewed and drunk at the time.

Look forward to the heart-felt early Blues songs of Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey and foot-stomping classics like “Your Feet’s Too Big” from Fats Waller – early Rock ‘n’ Roll is only just round the corner. You can be sure of a full dance floor!


No Jug Band is complete without the whoomp of a jug on the bass-line and the skitter of a washboard in the rhythm section! In addition, The Jake Leg Jug Band features male and female vocals ably supported by banjo or mandolin and guitar, with string-slapping double bass and occasional trombone and harmonica.
