Steel City Jug Slammers provide audiences with a one of kind experience. From the moment that they take the stage, spectators will immediately take a step back in time.  From their appearance, to their instruments, to the old southern banter, this group has all the charm of a century-old traveling music show fresh off the train, and will keep your attention captive from the first time you hear the blow of the jug and pluck of the tub bass.

The Steel City Jug Slammers (Birmingham, Alabama) started in late 2012 with an inspiration to learn and recreate the sound developed and recorded by the original jug bands of the 1920's and 30's. Over the years they have shared the stage with amazing artists like Dom Flemons, Pokey Lafarge, Old Crow Medicine Show, R. Crumb, Blind Boy Paxton, Sierra Ferrell, Rebirth Brass Band, Molly Tuttle, Jim Kweskin & many more. Off stage the band has brought jug band music to the community by teaching thousands of kids and adults Jug, Kazoo, and Washtub Bass lessons. Keep an eye out for more jug band ruckus to come.
