ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Half Moon Jug Band is a three-man musical mob of desperadoes hijacking the plodding freight train of folk music, steaming it up the mountains of rock ‘n roll, through the vaudeville pass, and down across the valley of country music before wrecking it in the middle of a rubber chicken farm on the outskirts of town. Their weapons of choice: guitars, banjos, mandolins, hefty bass riffs and rotund sing-along choruses. But they’re no bluegrass band; they also wield mighty kazoos, trumpets, harmonicas and thumping drums.

Jug band music is homemade music. You won’t hear it on the radio, you won’t see it on MTV and you can’t get it at Wal-Mart. It’s a creamy, sonically concocted casserole of American music. You’re not sure exactly what’s in there, but boy it sure tastes good. Musical labels are useless. If it sounds good, if the audience claps, if it feels honest, then it’s jug band music.

The band thrives on interaction with their audiences. For the HMJB it’s not just about standing on stage playing songs. It’s about singing, dancing and making people happy. They do whatever it takes to put on a show for all ages, studding every performance with jokes, stories and mandatory sing-alongs. No one gets out without singing. No one.

have thouroughly enjoyed listening to the album. Very enjoyable and can lift ones spirits. Hopefully you will be coming out with a new album. Wouldn't have known about you if you hadn't played at the Deerfield Fair in NH. Hope you'll be there next year. Bought a CD there and ordred more on line for xmas presents. The CD's came thru in good shape and on time.

Original, Upbeat, Catchy!
Completely Original, sparking a brand new kind of music. The kind of CD you don't have to take out of your player.
A must have.

Vibrbrant music
Great music I really like, then again I like Klez too. This CD has earned a slot in my car's six changer!

Breackin' through the barriers
Often acoustic oriented music has this kind of "seems fare away". Well, here's something else. Really comming through, almost agressive, punching the listener right in the face. Cathy tunes in snappy up-tempo and steady going medium with a drive you can't miss. And it's funny too, with a ticklin' good-time feel. It´s really great stuff. I was very pleased to find one of my favorite tunes, "The Cat Came Back", in one of the best versions I've ever heard of it on the album. But it's just one among a collection of fine songs. As The Half Moon Jug band sings: "The world doesn't need another sad love song". So instead they give you a lot of swingin', laughin', jumpin', beatin', rockin', skifflin' folk/jazz, with a power and energy that makes it tempting to call it "hardcore jug music".

Very much enjoyed seeing this band at Freyburg Fair and bought a CD there. Loved the CD so much I ordered another one at CDBaby and also purchased one for a friend for Christmas! Received my CD's in record time and in perfect condition!!
