Jook Joint Band

Jook  Joint  Band  is  a  jug  band  at  heart  and  they  have  been  wowing  audiences with  their  snappy  renditions  of  old  time  blues,  skiffle  and  ragtime  music  in  and around Western Australia for the past ten years.  They like to call the music they play “dancing blues” as they make it their aim to get their audience tappin’ their feet and slappin’ their thighs.

They are a five piece band and play a  variety  of instruments in the tradition of jug bands ranging from the jug, washboard, ukulele, 6 & 12 string guitars, acoustic bass, stand up drums and harmonica.  Their repertoire draws from an ever growing list of originals plus covers from the likes of Lead Belly, Memphis Jug Band, C.W. Stoneking, Jim Kweskin Jug Band, Blind Boy Fuller and others.

These good ol’ boys have been adding to the texture of the Western Australian music scene  for  some  time  now  and  enjoy  sharing  their  unique  style  of  music  with  an increasing audience base.

They  have  played  at  the Bridgetown  Blues  Festival,  Fairbridge  Festival of World and Folk Music, Boddington Music Festival and throughout the state at many other festivals including  the Canning Show, Fremantle  Heritage  Festival, East Fremantle George St Festival, Waroona Show, Mukinbudin Spring Festival, Folk and Roots at the Perth Cultural Centre to name a few. You can also catch them playing at pubs and bars in and around Perth & Freo.
