"The kings of 100% acoustic folk-skiffle-swing holiday highjinks," the Christmas Jug Band is invading Sweetwater for a return to the namesake that was the band's main home turf for 20+ years. This irreverent crewe of stalwart purveyors of the jugabilly mystique is a seasonal assemblage of misfits of Commander Cody alumni & others from notable Bay Area musical aggregations. One never knows exactly what special elves may be in tow when the CJB arrives, but in the past this band usually includes the likes of: Austin de Lone (Elvis Costello, Fabulous Thunderbirds), Paul Rogers (Those Darn Accordions), Tim Eschliman (Etta James, Jesse Colin Young, Commander Cody), Ken "Snakebite" Jacobs (Kinky Friedman & the Texas Jewboys, New Orleans Nightcrawlers), Gregory Leroy Dewey (Country Joe & The Fish, Mad River), Turtle Vandermarr (Dan Hicks) and Blake Richardson. What started as Wild Turkey-inspired momentary lapse of sanity is now, 5 albums (over 25,000 sold) & 35 years of fruitcakes later, an unconventional tradition of highly skewed merriment.
