Jake Leg Jug Band (2 July)
Presented by Rotary Rocks
Rotary Rocks is delighted to present 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.
A perfect recipe for a summer evening of good time music and humorous story telling.
"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
"Expert musicianship and great arrangements....highly recommended" Just Jazz
"Instrumental virtuosity. Very enjoyable, very listenable" Blues & Rhythm
"Good time music from a good-time group" The Jazz Rag
"A fine feast of good-timing jug band music, blues, vintage jazz and hokum with a nicely humorous attitude" Blues News (Norway)
“The band mesh together like a well-oiled machine. Smokin’!” Spiral Earth
Signing to one of the UK's most prestigious jazz labels ‘Lake Records’ the band recorded 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 in five years; ‘Cotton Mouth’, ‘Next Stop!’ ‘Everythin's Jake’ and ‘Break a Leg’ all met with rave reviews.
'Fifth Avenue' in 2018 was their debut for the Green Bullet record label. Album number 6, 'Goodbye Booze' in 2020 commemorated 100 years since the American prohibition began and in 2021 the album was released in vinyl on Coastal Light Records.
"Pick any track at random and prepare to be entertained" RnR
"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
The Jake Leg Jug Band celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2021 and in early 2022 recorded their first ever live album.
A new act for the Limelight and not to be missed.
All proceeds from this event to the Queens Park Arts Centre.
