The Almost Original Synthetic Swampgrass Jug-Band.com
A.K.A. - Son of the Original Synthetic Hickey Goodtime Rinky Dink Jugband Inc. - Urban Swampgrass.
The Almost Original Synthetic Swampgrass Jug Band.com actually began many years ago. Rumor has it that the boys got together for a high school talent show, since at that time no one could play any real instruments, kazoos, jugs, washtub bass, and other household implements were used. The Jug Band was an instant hit and it was decided that it would be a good idea to learn to play some real instruments, so they did.
Over the years the group has had many names (ask Jim, the bass player for proper chronology). During the late 1970's and early 1980's the band played all over the New York metro area. They played with Vassar Clements, Jay Unger, Del McCoury and many others.
Swampgrass Jug-band forces people to be free. This can be witnessed when the audience has the uncontrollable urge to play a kazoo or scrape a washboard along with us.
