Be a Jug Band Star: The Roadhouse Jug Band Auditions!

A revival in KEXP’s Roadhouse. Sign up for a chance to be a Jug Band star!

KEXP’s Greg Vandy is searching for folks to audition for a new Roadhouse Jug Band in the month of June! Selected applicants will audition live on The Roadhouse on KEXP (Wednesdays from 6PM to 9PM) on the instrument of their choice. Selected contestants will form a KEXP Jug Band who will perform live on The Roadhouse at a future date.

This is your chance to show your musicianship and old-time spirit by participating in this contest. Irreverence and style (original 1930s old-time or ’60s folk revival) will go a long way in the selection of band members. Homemade instruments not necessary. Rules & regulations apply.

To apply send an e-mail by May 31st to with your name, phone number, preferred jug band instrument(s) (jug, string bass, mouth harp, washboard, tissue paper & comb, etc.), and why you think you would be a good addition to the Roadhouse Jug Band. Please attach or link to an audio sample of your handiwork.

May the best jug win!
