Ragtime Jug Orchestra News
The Ragtime Jug Orchestra
On a plethora of acoustic instrumentation
The RJO bring you the music of:
the steamboat levees of St Louis,
the bars of Beale Street, Memphis,
the cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta,
the Appalachian back hills of Tennessee,
& the famed sporting houses of New Orleans.
The RJO is the authentic string-band sound of the early 20th century, playing a rootsy good-time mix of ragtime, country blues, hokum, skiffle and jug band music.
Take The RJO advice - "Just Get Drunk and Truck"
Audience participation is always encouraged
