Juggernaut Jug Band

With their kazoos, washboards, and, of course, jugs in tow, the Juggernaut Jug Band takes the Jubilee stage to share a fun-loving musical melange.

Hailing from Louisville, the birthplace of jug music—popularized in Mississippi and Ohio River cities during the early 20th century—the quartet mixes musical virtuosity and zany showmanship in a style that has made it an institution within the jug band genre.

The Juggernaut Jug Band, which is made up of Roscoe Goose, The Amazing Mr. Fish, Big Daddy T, and World Wide Webb, carries on the proud tradition of jug music, drawing from roots in blues, country, ragtime, jazz, and swing.

The Mountain Express (Asheville, NC) lauded the Juggernauts’ music as “bespeak[ing] a literal fusion of two worlds—a folky organic vibe tempered by the delicacy of academically trained musicianship,” while the Louisville Courier-Journal applauded the group’s “street band energy,” “swinging arrangements,” “sparkling musicianship,” and “wacko sense of humor.”
