          The Grateful Deads Bob Weir put it very simply: For me jug
band music is the mud my toes are planted in. Honor it! Washboard Slim
and the Bluelights is one of the few genuine roots bands that can
captivate an audience under 30. Their recent performances at the
legendary Toads Place in New Haven with Shakedown demonstrate the
all-age appeal of their music. The 21st century jug band revival is in
full swing and the Bluelights, representing Connecticut, are the first
band of its genre to appear at the renowned International Blues
Challenge in Memphis.             The Bluelights are the real deal, using only the jug and
washtub bass to provide the foundation of this energetic music. The
late legendary folk/blues artist Eric von Schmidt called the
Bluelights: Absolutely the best since Kweskin's Jug Band in the
Sixties. Traditional music in overdrive.The Bluelights are the real deal, using only the jug and washtub bass
to provide the foundation of this energetic music.
