Jugalug Stringband to get jazz junkies jamming

The Jugalug Stringband - one of many bands lined up for this weekend’s Dubbo Jazz Festival - takes its inspiration from the unique approach taken back in the 1920s and 30s, when “string bands were all the rage”.
The unique approach, in other words, means the use of cheap and what were often homemade instuments including Kazoos, harmonicas, washtubs basses and eventually jugs that were used as the bass instrument.
Popular ‘jug bands’ performed in dance halls, on street corners, bars and at parties.
Residents can get a glimpse of Jugalug on Friday when the Dubbo Jazz Festival kicks off with a full program of events starting at the RSL club from 6pm.
Thanks, Stewart......everyone loved your band.
A lot of people have said it's been the best festival ever. We tried to have as much variety as possible........you certainly provide that!
