Welcome to the FoBo Jug Band

The FoBo Jug Band are an acoustic trio stomping and hollering blues, country and ragtime classics of the prohibition era.

The band consists of:

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

In the past year we have played, the London Jazz Festival, headlined the Blues Shakedown festival, the Ignite Series at the Royal Albert Hall and Wilton’s Music Hall. We play the first Thursday of every month at Bar NightJar, London’s finest 1920s Speak Easy cocktail venue. We also play the Green Note in Camden once a month, London’s current favourite music venue (according to Time Out Magazine). Please check venue websites or contact us to confirm we are playing.

In 2016, we have gigs planned at the fantastic venue the Bull’s Head in Barnes, Cahoots Swing club in Soho, and a regular slot at the new sumptuous Oriole Bar in Smithfields.

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 have a playing opportunity please get in touch.
