Christmas Jug BandThe Christmas Jug Band brings together an all-star crew of clever and crafty Bay Area musicians for a tongue-in-cheek celebration of the season to be jolly! They have a new album, Jugology, featuring old favorites from their classic Christmas albums of yore, Mistletoe Jam, Tree-Side Hoot, Rhythm on the Roof, Uncorked, and On the Holiday Highway. Mistletunes.com calls the new album “another light-hearted romp from some West Coast experts in old-school American music.” These experts – Austin DeLone, Tim Eschliman, Paul Rogers, Gregory Leroy Dewey, Blake Richardson, and Ken “Snakebite” Jacobs – have played with Elvis Costello, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Kinky Friedman, Country Joe and the Fish, Etta James, and Commander Cody.
 
A shared love of Kentucky bourbon brought the band together in Mill Valley in the mid-1970s. Since then, through various incarnations and configurations, the band has converged at Christmas time to do the season justice, jug band style. Such artists as Dan Hicks, Maria Muldaur, Country Joe, and Norton Buffalo have joined in from time to time. They get down, they get up, they parody, they jam – they do just about whatever they want – and the result is music that’s fun, funny, and full of Christmas cheer!
