Wanted: One Jug Player. Professionalism and 3+ years experience required.

Up-and-coming jamboree band recently lost its jug player to a rival jug band. (If you’re reading this, Willy, we hope you enjoy your new “friends.”) Looking for an experienced, reliable jug player with own jug and van.

Must be career-driven and willing to put the band first. This is not a position for a jug player who might bail for a less motivated jamboree band just because he had a kid.

Must be familiar with the following songs:
- Swamp Brush Stomp
- Juggin’
- Uncle Gomer’s Gone Missin’
- Dirt Porch Two Step
- My Straw Hat
- Space Oddity
- Possum Go Home

Again, looking for someone interested in taking their jug playing to the next level. Goal is to be signed by a major label within the next six months, and everyone needs to put in their share of the legwork—flyering, mending overalls, out of town gigs. Ability to sit in on spoons and/or washboard a bonus, but not required. Also, HTML skills a big plus.

If interested, please contact “Slim” and provide a phone number and available dates for a possible test hoedown.
