Fans are eagerly awaiting the release of their new album this month. It is said to be chalk full of great new dirty tunes that stay true to their zany sound.
An amalgamation of blues, country, and rockabilly, Big Jugs serves up quirky tunes that are sure to get you slappin' your knee with the first twang of the jaw harp. With previously released classics like "Pro in Prostitute," Big Jugs' music is not for the prim and proper, but what's more fun than listening to dirty lyrics accompanied by a banjo, a saw, and a washboard?
Since Big Jugs started in 2006 they have played some great shows with artists coming through town, including The Devil Makes Three, Trainwreck, The Whoreshoes, Cash'd Out, Fast Heart Mart, Bob Wayne and The Outlaw Carnies, and many more.
The sextet who make up the controversial, semi-offensive, but always humorous Santa Barbara band Big Jugs aren’t afraid to say it: They love big jugs. The boys of Big Jugs love a number of other things, too, but due to strict codes of ethics, those things can’t be listed here. Nevertheless, their special brand of knee-slappin’, rockabilly-meets-psychobilly is all in the business of novelty (think Larry the Cable Guy’s famous catchphrase “Git r done”). And it seems their shtick has caught on.
Musically speaking, the sixpiece creates quite the scene, employing a mandolin, guitars, snare drums, saws, washboards, an upright bass, and, of course, a heavy helping of swear words. But it’s all in good fun, the band promises. And fun they have lots of it.
