Half Moon Jug Band

SATURDAY, FEB 25 — Doors at 7:00 PM; Show at 7:30 PM

An interactive night of touching and uproarious Maine-inspired songs about cross-country horse travelers, Civil War heroes, wayward moose, and the culinary delights of tuna noodle casserole.

The Half Moon Jug Band is a 21st-century jug band rooted in the Downeast humor and dry wit traditions of their home State O’ Maine. Upbeat and positive, the Half Moon Jug Band does whatever it takes to get you singing along and dancing in the aisles. They firmly believe that “Louie, Louie” is every bit as real a folk song as “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain.”

Before you ask: There’s no jug. It’s implied. Jug band music is the homemade music friends make sitting ’round the kitchen table. You won’t hear it on the radio, you won’t see it on cable TV and you can’t get it at Walmart. Labels don’t apply here. If it sounds fun, if the audience claps in time, if it feels honest, then it’s jug band music.

This band thrives on interaction with audiences. It’s not just about standing on stage playing songs. It’s about singing, dancing, and making people happy. Every performance is studded with jokes, stories, and mandatory sing-alongs. No one gets out without singing.

No one.
