About Bones Jugs
Bones, Jug, Xylophone, wind power (clarinet, trombone, udderbot, kazoos,) resonator guitar, banjo, double bass, drums, all sorts of noise makers. These are just some of the instruments we play around with at our shows. The group began with the dream of throwing a high energy party with acoustic instruments. We started with some old xylophone rags, and now we have introduced a combination of originals and covers old and new: as old as Leroy Carr’s “Barrelhouse Women”, and the classic “Salty Dog Blues,” and as new as the Beastie Boys’ “Girls” and Abigail Washburn’s “Divine Bell.” We are highly influenced by jugbands and stringbands, both new and old. We want to party. We want, we want to party. With you. And your friends. And other people that neither of us know. We’re hoping we can all dance till we fall down, sing till our voices cannot be found, and smile till our faces fall off. Bones.
