You haven't heard "Pinball Wizard" or "People Are Strange" until you've heard it played on jugs and "various other sundries." Jug band music is blues, ragtime, swing and jazz combined in a strange concoction spawned in Loiusville, home of the Juggernaut Jug Band. Jug bands flourished in towns along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers in the 1920s and 1930s.Today, as then, a jug band is the ultimate party band. The Juggernauts have been featured on the "Today Show" and radio's "Dr. Demento Show." Their current CD is Jugs Up! www.juggernautjugband.com

Good Little Giants a dynamic duo that entertains with fun music while plumbing the depths of a faithful believer's walk. Songs like "Tiptoe" leave their hooks stuck in your head while encouraging an unwavering pursuit of truth. "Olly Olly Oxen Free" is an invitation to the lost to come out of hiding without penalty, and features a layered gospel choir in its final choruses. Lead singer/songwriter Scott Phillips even dabbles briefly with hip hop in a tongue-twisting rap encouraging perseverance in the face of suffering, in the crowd-pleasing anthem, "Glory Is Coming." The band breathes new life into an old favorite - their celebratory remake proves that "How Great Thou Art" isn't just for funerals anymore!
Purposefully theological with a prophetic challenge to believers everywhere, GLG's music makes it clear that their prayer is for these songs and their lives to point to a living, eternal, all-powerful, loving Creator.
This is a rare opportunity to experience Good Little Giants in an intimate venue! https://www.reverbnation.com/goodlittlegiants
