Devine’s Jug Band is a San Francisco ensemble wise to the ways of the weird old South. Devine’s Jug Band IS “America’s most authentic sounding jug band”…say’s legendary radio personality Mal Sharpe, formally of KCSM Radio. Playing jug band blues, hokum, and old-style string band music – Devine’s Jug band consists of Meredith Axelrod on guitar & vocals, Morgan Cochneuer on Mandolin, Banjo-mando & fiddle, and Pete Devine blowing that old whisky porcelain jug for the bass – as well as percussion and vocals!
This is a rare show for the jug band – so please don’t miss this very special event!

It makes of us a race of intellectual cowards; it changes but little if any our daily conduct toward each other. But doubt sets us free."
-- Job Harriman, 1902
