      I enjoyed the music very much. Maria Muldaur was a big disappointment. I remember her from the days of "Midnight at the Oasis" but I assure you, those days are long gone. I also did not appreciate the profanity at the end of her performance.

      Fun Holiday times with a bunch of pretty good musicians. Maria added a lot, & the show was very enjoyable. Obviously these folks worked for a while to pull off such a multi-faceted show.

      ...and a fantastic time was had by all!! The Christmas Jug Band was in top form, and special guest Maria Muldaur put it over the top! I thoroughly enjoyed the show, so much humor and creativity with great songs. Loved the twists and turns of many of them~ all about Christmas and winter and having fun! It would have been a blast being there, but this was the next best thing!

Bio

The Christmas Jug Band is a loose affiliation of local folkies, hipsters, and roots rockers who share a love for jug band versions of cherished Christmas classics and irreverent originals like "Santa Lost a Ho" and albums with titles like "Mistletoe Jam".

The Christmas Jug Band is a loose affiliation of local folkies, hipsters, and roots rockers who share a love for jug band versions of cherished Christmas classics and irreverent originals like "Santa Lost a Ho" and albums with titles like "Mistletoe Jam". "Make no mistake," writes Paul Liberatore of the San Jose Mercury News, "the Jug Band may be jokey, but its venerable members are some of the best musicians in the Bay Area and beyond." For 36 years now, these purveyors of raucous revelry and lowdown hijinks have transformed staid Christmas standards into funky jug band jive, complete with all the bells and whistles, washboards and washtubs, wood blocks and kazoo.

We never know for sure exactly who will play the show, but committed regulars include bandleader Tim Eschliman of Commander Cody fame, Paul Rogers of Those Darn Accordions, Ken "Snakebite" Jacobs, side-kick of Kinky Friedman, Austin de Lone, who's played with Nick Lowe and Elvis Costello, and Gregory Leroy Dewey and Blake Richardson, who've played with many other wonderful bands and musicians. Occasional guests have included Dan Hicks, Country Joe McDonald, Angela Strehli, and Nick Gravenites. What began as a momentary lapse of sanity inspired by just the right amount of Wild Turkey has led to five albums and too many fruitcakes to count.

There's nothing like CJB's unique brand of jug band magic to put you in that glowing holiday mood.
