Dedicated to preserving the music, spirit and humor of the original Louisville Jug Bands of the early 1900's, the Juggernaut Jug Band was formed over thirty years ago. Today, it is known as the only full time touring jug band.
With the traditional instrumentation of guitars, mandolins, banjos, bass and vocals, jug bands added one strange twist—the sound of blowing the jug. If that wasn't enough, they topped it off with perhaps a washboard, washtub bass, kazoos, nose flutes and whatever else was available. The Juggernauts have continued in this tradition of having fun. With each performance, the band invites the audience to have as much fun as the band. Don't let their antics fool you though! Their exuberant music is the result of skillful arrangements and unique vocal harmonies.
Juggernaut Jug Band has played almost every type of venue imaginable including concert halls, riverboats, festivals, fairs and theme parks. They have also appeared on television and radio locally, nationally and internationally, and have produced six CDs and a video.
