The Brotherhood of the Jug Band Blues is a loose collective of Jug Band and Old Time Country Blues musicians. They play traditional and original jug band music, mixed with the urban influences of New York City. Jug bands originated in the South and enjoyed popularity around the Louisville, KY and Memphis, TN areas during the 20s and 30s and again nationwide during the 60s. The band members came together after various stints with the Brooklyn Jugs, Jug Free America, and Banjorama. Current members include players from the Whiskey Spitters and the Dust Busters.
