Pre- WWII old time Blues The Steel City Jug Slammers

In the tradition of the Memphis Jug Bands in the late 20s and early 30s these guys bring us music about life, women, and booze performed most of the time on a washtub bass, jug, banjo, guitar and kazoo. The Steel City Jug Slammers are a modern jug band performing pre- WWII old time blues since 2012.

Sounds of the 78 RPM era back to life

On their website you’ll read that: “The band was started by Nicholas “Ramblin’ Ricky Tate” Bate with Jerrod Atkins & friends in 2012. The band consists of Ramblin’ Ricky Tate, Washtub Jay, & Maxwell Honeycup. Since forming the band has become known for their jug band antics. Performing a catalog of classics and originals, the Steel City Jug Slammers brings the sounds of the 78 RPM era to life.”
