We are well rested, well-travelled and rarin’ to go. Some of the Jook Joint Band boys have been traipsing around the country (Bill) and others (Peter) have been viewing the northern lights just south of the Arctic Circle, the rest have been livin’ the life in suburbia.
The band is gearing up for the release of its brand new album “Shake That Thing”. You can take home a copy next time you come and see us play. The album reflects the band’s blues and jug band heritage but also showcases the interpretations of those ragtime type songs as reinvented by the likes of Leon Redbone and Pokey Lafarge.
It will all come together for the band when they hit the stage at the Swallow Bar on Sunday afternoon the 17 September 5-7pm. It’ll be oozlin.
Following on from the Swallow Bar we are looking forward to a big Friday night at Rodney’s Bait ‘n Tackle on the 29 September from 8 – 10pm. We will be including all twelve songs from the new album in our playlist on the night. So you’ll find you just have to take them home with you -on the new CD.
We will be back playing at the National Hotel in Freo from 3.30 – 6.30pm on the 15 October, 12 November and 17 December.
