The FoBos

The FoBo Jug Band are an acoustic trio stomping and hollering blues, country and ragtime classics from 100 years ago.

The trio consists of:

  • Harpo – Harmonica and Washboard;
  • Speed Dial Simmonds – Guitar, Vocals and Kazoo;
  • Cripple Fingers – Piano.

Gig highlights for us include the London Jazz Festival, London Blues Fest, headlining the Blues Shakedown festival, the Ignite Series at the Royal Albert Hall, Wilton’s Music Hall and the Bull’s Head in Barnes.

We play the first Thursday of every month at Bar NightJar, London’s finest Speak Easy cocktail venue. We also play the Green Note in Camden once a month, voted London’s favourite music venue not just by us but Time Out Magazine too.

In 2018, we have gigs planned at many of the venues mentioned above plus a few adventures beyond the M25.

Please check the ‘gigs’ page for dates and do come and join us.

We like to holler and stomp at any opportunity, so if you want to party like it’s 1910 please get in touch.
