The Jake Leg Jug Band bring you the authentic sounds of 1920's and 30's America - Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Ragtime - and put their own twist on it. Songs of murder, betrayal, gambling, liquor and redemption. Quickly gaining a reputation as a lively, feel-good band.

The band's debut album 'Cotton Mouth' was released in February 2013 on both CD and 10" vinyl format to critical acclaim. Its success led to them signing a recording contract with one of the UK's most prestigious Jazz labels - Lake Records - recording their new album 'Next Stop!' as part of their 'Vintage Recording Project' - essentially recording live around one ribbon microphone, as it would have been back in the 1930's, meeting with rave reviews:
"Instrumental virtuosity. Very enjoyable, very listenable." Blues & Rhythm
"Every now and then a CD comes along that puts a smile on your face, and this is one of them…a fine CD" Fatea
"These classics from another century take on a new life in their hands" Spiral Earth
"An album fresh to listen to but with a rare authentic feel. Hugely recommended" Tykes News

The line up features Duncan Wilcox (Vocals & Double Bass), Esther Brennan (Vocals, Washboard & Ukulele), Andy Anderson (Vocals, Banjo, Dobro & Mandolin), Neil Hulse (Vocals & Guitar) and Purcy Harmonica (Vocals, Harmonica, Saw & Percussion).
