Kelburn Viaduct Municipal Ensemble Jug Band

Thursday, 1 October 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

|Recurring Gig (See all)

The Kelburn Viaduct Municipal Ensemble Jug Band share a passion for jug band music and recognise its unique place in music history, both at the dawn of Jazz and Blues, and later when skiffle bands sprang up in the UK.

Their authentic sound is helped by some of the hand made instruments played that include the Tea Chest Bass; lagerfone; washboard; jug and stomp box. Each band member has direct connections with jug bands both here in NZ and the UK, and perform in numerous other bands around Wellington.

The band:
Pip Payne – washboard, lagerfone, guitar, vocals, kazoo and jug
Neil Worboys – banjo, mandolin, harmonica, kazoo, vocals, guitar and jug
Maurice Priestley – guitar, mandolin, kazoo, vocals, whistles and bells
Bill Wood – tea chest bass, dobro, vocals, hollers and whoops
Steve Carlyle – guitar, washboard, t chest bass, squeeze box, jug and vocals.

The style of music encompasses rural blues and good-time music with a mix of original folk / blues thrown in.

The band is building up a solid reputation as an energetic and fun band to go and see.
