As those of you who know me are aware, jug band music is one of my life-long passions. That’s why several years ago some of us formed the California Jug Band Association (CJBA), a 501(c)(3) educational non-profit. Now before you laugh, the CJBA has really filled a niche because jug bands and jug band enthusiasts, old and young, have “come out of the woodwork.”
The CJBA now has festivals all over Northern California and a debut festival is planned for Southern California in 2009. The next festival will be in San Francisco next month and promises to be great. Please take a look at http://www.jugfest.org about details on the CJBA and the upcoming San Francisco festival.
The CJBA logo was designed by Robert Armstrong who some of you may know as a fabulous artist and musician (The Cheap Suit Serenaders and The Joy Buzzards). Robert is also well-known for inventing the concept(?) of the “couch potato.”
