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. They have gained a reputation as a lively, feel-good band and dress in period clothing to complete the package
Signed to one of the UK's most prestigious Jazz labels - Lake Records, recording their albums as part of their 'Vintage Recording Project' - essentially recording all live around ribbon microphones, as it would have been back in the 1930's.
They play an array of instruments from guitar, banjo, double bass, dobro and mandolin to the less conventional washboard, kazoo and saw! All complemented by 5 unique lead vocalists
