The Monkeygrass Jug Band plays a wild foot-stomping, high-spirited blend of original string band music in the great city of Athens, GA.
Says band: "From our perspective, jug bands didn't have rules and neither do we. They played reels and ragtime and country blues. We dabble in old time and bluegrass, but we also love Little Feat and Townes Van Zandt and the Grateful Dead. Our approach to songwriting is testament to that. And from the inside, this band is an anarchist's dream. Everyone brings something unique and has total freedom to express themselves. We like to put the pedal down and cut the break lines, to get out on the high wire and play like our supper depends on it."
The Monkeygrass Jug Band's self titled album was recorded live and mixed by Bronson Tew and Matt Patton at Dial Back Sound in Water Valley, MS. Please visit www.monkeygrassjugband.com to listen and download.
