About Bones Jugs N Harmony
Bones, jug, xylophone, kazoos, steel pan, resonator guitar, banjo, double bass, drums, donkey jawbone, all sorts of noise makers… these are just some of the instruments Bones Jugs N Harmony use to conjure up their eclectic acoustic sound. The group began in December 2012 with the vision of being a pop-up party on street corners, at farmers markets, in living rooms (and kitchens!), or even amplified in a club. A jug band of sorts, with four synchronized one-man-bands woven together in a tapestry of delight. And the cherry on top? high speed, virtuosic, xylophoning. They began learning 1920’s xylophone rags and arranging classic (and not-so-classic) Americana songs. After just a few public appearances it became clear that the group was too fun to be a side project. Listeners wanted to dance, sing, and laugh along as long as the tunes kept coming. The band could not resist, so they began investing in the ensemble as a full time gig.
Now, three years into the project, they’ve logged almost 300 shows and continue to aggressively tour in support of their debut album Party’s in the Kitchen. Primarily focusing on the Midwest music scene, Bones Jugs continues to bring their party from town to town.
