    I thought all you had to do to be a jug band was to pass one around backstage. But I could be wrong.

    Nooooooooo ... but it might help some.

    Actually, what I've heard of the old jug bands, some of those guys had some serious chops. Even if they were playing rather <ahem> inexpensive instruments, they could blister when called for. And only a small percentage of them were recorded, so I can't help wondering how great some of them were.

    Also, of the two jug bands I've been in, one had some seriously talented players (not necessarily including me). I'm thinking particularly of the jug and tub player, who had perfect pitch, and also a fine singing voice. He even had a rig that enabled him to play jug and tub at the same time, when desired. The other band enlisted me to increase their instrumental prowess, so you can imagine how badly off they were ...

    We got to hang out and play music with Bob and Aline in Sauve on a couple of occasions, we are close friends with their good friend Maggie DeMiramon - he is a wonderful and crafty player and I can't steal any licks 'cause it's backwards and upside down. It's hard to stop once we start, and the songbook is a large one... Tell him howdy from me - hope to see him in the fall in Sauve...
