the mafia jug band appearing on Sunday 6 th November at 8 pm adnission 12 euro .

From the pastoral hills, hollers, shopping malls and interstate highways of Goodlettsville Tennessee, home of Bill Monroe, Bashful Brother Oswald, Stringbean, Grandpa Jones, Keith Whitley and some living country music performers, comes the most entertaining “blast from the past” since Lester Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys. They’re the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band– five guys and a scrubboard, with roots like wisdom teeth.

Featuring the ever popular, banjo-twirling 'sultan of Goodslettsville, the Tennessee Slicker LEROY TROY...this frolicking fivesome brightens up the stage with rib-tickling old time tunes. 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.
"Hot picking, powerful harmony singing and riotous hijinks that will perk you up between the “hot young country” acts– that’s the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band, and thank God for them."
