Five Guys and a Scrubboard, with Roots Like Wisdom Teeth
May 27 at 7:30PM at The Arts Center
Newest Spring-Fed Record artists and Arts Center favorite will perform old-time songs featuring banjo master and showman Leroy Troy. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band have shamelessly stolen a feature of the old Roy Acuff Show– a bit known as “Pap & the Jug Band”.
This frolicking five some brightens up the stage with rib-tickling old time tunes. Even better, they have an utter lack of self-consciousness (and some might say any sense of decorum).
The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band not only know the music, they wear the costumes, tell corny jokes and even do slapstick gags that throw a cable-TV-numbed audience into hysterics. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band includes “Lonesome” Lester Armistead, Leroy Troy - “The Tennessee Slicker”, David “Ferg” Ferguson, Dan Kelly, and Mike Armistead This group will give you a lot of “hot picking”, “powerful harmony singing” and “riotous hijinks” that are guaranteed to perk you up.
