The California Jug Band Association and the San Francisco Jug Band Festival

July 18, 2008

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.”
