    Nov 1

    Nashville, TN, US | 8:00pm

    It was 10 years ago that Limber Louie came flop-foot dancing into existence with a Jamaica Ginger Jigger full of Chicken-Fried, Pre-War, Hokum-Billy Jug Music to delight discerning audiences and bedevil the paragons of prudishness! In honor of this milestone, come join the Jake Leg Stompers as we celebrate a decade of musical mayhem on Saturday Nov. 1st at the Station Inn, 9pm. We’ll have current and former band members (after all, the Stompers HAVE had more bass players than Spinal Tap has had drummers), we’ll be doing new and old tunes, and being All Saints Day, this is the ONLY jugband event officially sanctioned by the panoply of formerly-bodied jugband legends now blowing kazoo in the choir immaculate. If you only see ONE show in 2014…it probably should have been Paul McCartney at the Bridgestone…but if you see ONE MORE show (or didn’t feel like paying $300 per ticket) come see the JAKE LEG STOMPERS 10th ANNIVERSARY EXTRAVAGANZA at the STATION INN! Limber Louie will be glad you came!

    Bon Aqua, TN, US | 6:00pm

    As you are doubtless aware, the International operations of Jake Leg Stompers Inc. are headquartered in the sprawling office complexes of our corporate home base in Bucksnort, TN, but it’s been much too long since the Stompers have traveled to our spiritual, familial (and financial) home of Hickman Co. for a proper concert. Ye, Fear thee not! ‘Cause there’s gonna to be a Stomp-down homecoming THIS coming Saturday, Sept. 13th at 6pm at the Piney River Escape (6832 Piney River Rd N, Bon Aqua, TN 37025) as the Jake Leg Stompers bring their high-test brand of Chicken-Fried, Pre-war, Hokum-Billy Jug Music back to the land from whence it came! Bring your lawn chairs, your young-un’s, and your dancing shows and head on down to the prettiest little place in God’s own country. And as the great Sonny Boy Williamson used to say, “don’t meet us there, BEAT us there!”

    Logan, OH, US | 7:00pm

    About The Washboard Music Festival Every year, on Father’s Day weekend, the downtown streets of Logan, Ohio come alive with the celebration of the washboard, as a musical instrument. Logan is the home of the Columbus Washboard Company, the only remaining washboard manufacturing company in the U.S. Washboards continue to be used as instruments of laundry-day in some parts of the world, and they add decorative value to many homes. But, this artifact of the ages is more known as the source of that toe-tappin’ rhythm coming from Jug bands and Dixieland groups throughout the country. It all began in rural America around mid-1800’s, where music was a center- piece of family entertainment, but money was scarce. So, the washboard, an empty jug, along with a stick and string attached to metal tub turned upside down, became the backwoods answer to Saturday Night at Carnegie Hall. Modified to form a “vest” that hangs from the shoulders, that same raspy sound of energy also became the source of rhythm for Cajun music throughout the Bayou. Welcome to Logan, heart of the beautiful Hocking Hills and enjoy Ohio’s Most Unique Music Festival.
