|It was a momentary lapse of sanity that became a musical holiday tradition. This year The Christmas Jug Band
celebrates its 25th Anniversary and the release of its latest CD "UNCORKED." The irreverent CJB crew returns for this
collection of soon-to-be seasonal classics led by the great Rogers tune "SANTA LOST A HO." The highly skewed combo of San
Francisco/Bay Area notables captures its unique brand of holiday spirit and mirth in this CD song bag stuffed with a
holiday mix of jazz, blues, folk and rock n' roll. For a little unconventional seasonal merriment, get "UNCORKED" and
celebrate with The Christmas Jug Band.
"...this highly skewed Christmas set is a hoot ....a song bag that pulls from many outlaw quadrants
...a great break from 'Deck the Halls.' "
