The Jake Leg Jug Band bring you the authentic sounds of 1920’s and 30’s America – Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Ragtime – and put their own twist on it. Songs of murder, betrayal, gambling, liquor and redemption.
Signed to one of the UK’s most prestigious Jazz labels ‘Lake Records’ they record their albums as part of the ‘Vintage Recording Project’ essentially recording all live around ribbon microphones, as it would have been back in the 1930’s. Four albums released in the last five years; ‘Cotton Mouth’, ‘Next Stop!’ ‘Everythin’s Jake’ and their latest offering ‘Break a Leg’ have all met with rave reviews;
