Juggernaut Jug Band

Juggernaut Jug Band

About thirty years ago, a group of high school students banded together and became the Juggernaut Jug Band, Juggernaut Jug Band dedicated to perserving the music and the spirit of the original Louisville jug bands from the early 1900s. Just as New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz, Louisville is the home of jug band music, a blend of jazz and blues performed on strings and other standard instruments, with one strange twist -- the sound of a jug.

Close Up With each performance of the Juggernaut Jug Band, the music and humor of jug bands continue. Every time the band walks on stage, the audience is invited to have as much fun as the band. Don't let their antics fool you though...their exuberant music is the result of skillfully conceived arrangements and unique vocal harmonies.
