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!

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.

"Up to No Good" album review: There is a swagger to the Jake Leg Stompers. They play their version of old timey music and make it relevant to this day and age. It may be old timey, but it’s not elderly. This is party music from the last century to this current one. There’s a lot of lustily sung choruses and shouted exhortations behind the melodies, and that’s a great part of the record. One of the recurring popular fads (and a good one in that) is the hard strummed guitars, harmony of vibrato strings, and passionate singing of the Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, and others working that loud acoustic instrument groove. The Jake Leg Stompers got that angle covered with an almost drunken enthusiasm even on the more down numbers. And they cap their subversive humor with a Shel Silverstein song that brings all this good crazy music to a smoking climax.
