This is the second collaboration we've done with the Abyssmal Team (*First was 'Chained to the Bottom' Music Video), and we appreciate the artistry, professionalism and creativity they bring to the table.

Our desire with this project was to pay homage to the 80's cult flix and Jim Henson films of old, while also bringing a unique visual sensibility to our song. We were bold enough to ask the question: What would a gang of Vultures be doing on a Saturday Night??? And now we can give you the answer. We hope you enjoy...

Nominated for Album of the Year

The Bloody Jug Band’s latest Album, ‘Coffin Up Blood’ is currently nominated for Album of the Year on SavingCountyMusic.com. It’s Very Humbling and Badass All at the Same Time. It just shows when you believe in something and stick to your creative guns, other’s will eventually take notice...

indiegogo.com logo SavingCountyMusic.com’s Very Own TriggerMan says - "If I was picking the winner exclusively on creativity and originality, this album would win it running away. Coffin Up Blood gives you hope for music. It proves that there’s still new ways of making old music, and still uncharted territory yet to discover. At the same time it is one of the most purely entertaining albums of 2012. On the outside it may look like some horror gimmick, but this was an album that lots of time and love went into and was done right from start to finish."

CLICK HERE to Check Out ALL the Great 2012 Nominees. We also invite our JUG-ly Crew to Post Feedback on the Site to Show Added Support. A Little Extra Blood Always Helps to Tip the Scales...

Help Fund the BJB’s Next Music Video

What would a Gang of Vultures be doing on a Saturday Night??? Well, Let us Show You... in our Next MUSIC VIDEO.

Due to the amazing response and success of our first Music Video for the song ‘Chained to the Bottom’, The Bloody Jug Band is launching a Fundraising Campaign through IndieGoGo.com to help fund our Next Music Video for the song ‘Roadkill Boys’ which appears on our critically acclaimed album, ‘Coffin Up Blood’.

Our Goal is to raise the Creative and Visual bar with this Second Music Video. This will allow the BJB to grow its Global Fanbase, while continuing to support Central Florida’s Independent Filmmakers and Artists. This project will be taking a totally unique approach to the traditional Music Video format by incorporating high quality PUPPETS along with Live Actors and Green Screen Technology to create a visually environment that lends itself amazingly well to the story and mood of the song. The video will also act as an homage to classic Jim Henson films (Labyrinth, Dark Crystal...etc).

Outlaw Magazine reviews ‘Coffin Up Blood’

Outlaw Magazine is an Online Publication and resource for all things Badass, whose slogan is Overproduced mediocrity need not apply. Well, we’re thankful they thought our Outlaw Magazine latest Album, Coffin Up Blood was worthy of their Outlaw moniker and a write-up on their site.

Written by Nik Havert, this Album Review is chalked full of JUG-ly quotes such as, "If you think jug bands are something from a bad Hee-Haw sketch, the Bloody Jug Band is here to not only change your mind, but also to fascinate and terrify you". And Nik was obviously a little smitten with our own Stormy Jean as he admits, "I wouldn’t challenge any of them to a fight. Heck, Stormy Jean would just bat her eyelashes at me and I’d fall over". - Little does he know that as she distracts him, the rest of us are outside stealing his Car...we are Outlaws after all.

Orlando Sentinel - Coffin up Ink

Orlando Sentinel Logo The Orlando Sentinel’s own music writer, Jim Abbot gives our New Album, ‘Coffin Up Blood’, a great write-up in his article this week. Abbot, who covers our latest release amidst a larger article entitled, Chili Peppers aging gracefully, admits it has taken him awhile to love this JUG-ly Crew, but starts off his article with a confession that ‘I’m a Believer Now’.

This is high praise coming from such a well respected writer and critic. He goes on to praise Producer, Justin Beckler for his work and state the Album is ‘a well-conceived marriage of concept with songs and performances that uplift the theme’. -and- ‘an earthy landscape that’s the sonic equivalent of a really awesome Halloween party at a cabin in the swamp’. For a band who loves to clip press snippets, this is a great one to note amongst many other favorable reviews we’ve received recently about the new album.

I Like my JUG’s Hand-Carved

Ever gotten a splinter playing with your JUGs? Well, you may run that risk with the newest addition to our plethora of Bloody Jug Band Merchandise. BJB - Hand Carved Skull Jug In collaboration with DeTiki of DeTiki Custom Carvings, we now offer a BJB inspired wooden Skull JUG, hand-carved out of a solid piece of reclaimed yellow pine.

This collaboration originally began last year during the JUG-ly Art & Antics Charity Art Exhibit we curated. One of the many amazing artists represented during this Americana Exhibit were the stunning wood-carvings from DeTiki. An initial Moonshine Skull Jug was created for the event, but we loved it sooooo very much, we asked if we could give it a permanent home at our ONLINE STORE. And that is where you can find yours... Each carving is made to order, so no two are exactly alike.

The BJB tells ‘The MAN’ where to Go

With the seeds of revolution in the air, what better time to rally together to show our distaste for ‘The Man’ and Corporate Takeover. This weekend the BJB will be performing at F! the Man Fest II for a celebration of local and indie culture. The event is being coordinated by the politically-minded Central Florida band, SNAFU for the second year in a row, and will include local artists, musicians and vendors all coming together for a common cause. Held on the backlot of the locally owned Milk Bar. No agendas, just a celebration of freedom, while we still have it. Presale tickets are available for $5.00 and get you a FREE drink at the event.

Upon winning the Best Acoustic Performance of 2010 @ Q’s House we were awarded various swag, as well as our own PersonaliTea blend from Madam Pots of Mad Pots of Tea.

the BJB rocks w/ Rev. Peyton’s BIG DAMN Band @ BackBooth (12/11/10)

We have one of our biggest shows EVER coming up on December 11th at BackBooth, and we need your help moving some tickets. We are playing with Reverend Peyton’s BIG DAMN BAND, a band that in many ways inspired the BJB into existance. I know I personally would not be playing the washboard today if it wasn’t for WashBoard Breezy and their overall influence has been huge on me over the last few years...

So, show your JUG-ly Support by hitting us up before now and then and buying a ticket. They are $8.00 through us, and $10.00 at the door. But, the bottom line is that in order to keep getting top quality gigs like this, we need to do our part with the pre-sell tickets. It is a necessary evil all bands have to deal with...and to be honest, I wouldn’t even ask if I didn’t feel this night will be WELL worth the $$. Along w/ the Rev, we will be playing with RJ Harman and recently added - The Die Tryin’s.

Bloody Jug Band - Orlando’s lo-fi Gothic blues and Americana septet writes morbid songs with titles like ‘Graverobber Blues’ and ‘Her Blood,’ the later about getting herpes from sucking blood and delivered by gruff-drawling singer/washboard scratcher Cragmire with throaty vocal harmonics provided by Stormy Jean. Other instruments include dobro and lapsteel guitars, washtub bass, mouth harp, and a "bloody" jug.

Meet ... The Bloody Jug Band

By Gabriel Loewenberg
tbt* correspondent

The Bloody Jug Band has set out to do things a little differently.

"We said we want to do kind of a horror jug band, and most people that you talk to don’t even know what the hell a jug band is," vocalist and washboard scratcher Cragmire says.

"Have you ever seen the Country Bear Jamboree? You ever see Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas?" Once people hear that, Cragmire says, "they start getting their minds around it." But it’s not quite that simple. Rather than starting a traditional jug band, this Orlando seven-piece throws several other genres into the mix. Bluegrass, rock n’ roll, blues and outlaw country are all equally represented, topped off with a wicked sense of humor and a little camp for show. One might call them Florida swamp-noir.

Along with Cragmire, the band, whose members all go by nicknames, consists of Stormy Jean on vocals and cowbell, Brian Shredder on the bloodyaxe (guitar), Seth Funky on washtub bass, Big Daddy Jerm on the jug, Motorcycle Sean on mouth harp and Adam Blackwater on resonator and lap steel. The subject matter of their footstomping songs is typically dark, creepy and tongue-in-cheek. While some types of music that celebrate the dark side takes itself too seriously (I’m looking at you, death metal), the Bloody Jug Band didn’t want to get caught up in that.

"We’re certainly not a gimmick," Cragmire says. "We totally believe in what we’re doing, but at the same time, giving (crowds) that something else and being in on the joke." For example, in one song, Boy Named Lucy (which is a bit of a spin on the Johnny Cash classic A Boy Named Sue), the bullies at a school pick on a young boy by calling him "little Lucy goosey." But the joke is on them, as Lucy’s name is really Lucifer, and he sets out to get their souls. Another track, Her Blood, is about a vampire who gets herpes by sucking the blood of a working girl.

So yeah, it’s a little campy, but it’s all in good fun.

Cragmire emphasized that he wants this band to be a family, first and foremost. In doing something so musically different, he wanted to make sure everyone operated as a cohesive unit.

"None of us are 18 anymore, getting our GEDs and trying to become a rock band," he says. "The members range in age from 25 to 43. We’re all serious about what we’re doing."

"We all have day jobs and things, but are really trying to make a splash, trying to give the world something different."

The Bloody Jug Band

The group performs with Sarah Purser at 10 p.m. Saturday at
Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe, 5119 N Nebraska Ave., Tampa.
$5. (813) 234-1000.

Bowling for Charity - August 18th - Come Join Us!!!

Now I know some of you may think that the BLOODY JUG Band is nothing but a bunch of super sexy individuals who love rockin’ out and singing songs about Blood and Zombies...BUT NO!!! LOL. There is more than meets the eye...

We also care deeply about our community and advocating for good causes, which is why when we were approached to participate in the Inaugural Bowling Tournament put on by Ronald McDonald Charities of Central Florida, we jumped at the chance. Now, we may not eat at McDonalds and we may all be scared of clowns, BUT we will do anything for sick kids.

So come on out and toss some balls around with the BJB on August 18th at the Colonial Bowling Lanes. We will be there with our own team of misfits, and will be joined by some of our great community-minded friends at Enemy Ink, Abyssmal Entertainment and many more...

Do you like BLOOD with your Chili??? (Gig on March 12th)

The BJB will be playing Smokin Devany’s - Inaugural Chili Cook-Off this Friday night (March 12th). If that wasn’t enough, in between our sets we will also be holding a ‘Worst Tattoo Contest’ Sponsored by Atomic Tattoos. So... in one night, lots of tasty Chili, live music from the Bloody Jug Band...and shitty Tattoo’s.... Now, you may be asking yourself how could all these random things come together to form such an amazing night? You got me...only GOD knows the answer to that I guess.

Smokin’ D’s is located at 7620 N. Goldenrod Rd in Winter Park, FL (32792). There is no cover to get in, and lots of great Beers to choose from. The Chili Cookoff will begin around 8:00pm and we will start jamming a little after 10pm once everyone is good and full of beans.

This will be a fun and low key evening, so if you haven’t had the opportunity to come out and see the BJB in action yet, what better time then now.

the BJB Welcomes New Members & More...

Some newsworthy events have been happening lately, so here is a little Bloody update for you....

- Last weekend the BJB had our first foray in recording and ended up laying down 4 tracks that will eventually appear on our ‘First Drops...’ EP. Although alot of Blood was spilled during the session and our engineer had to go to the hospital for multiple stab wounds, we made it out alive.

People have been hounding us about when they can hear some of our Bloodsongs... My answer is always - Make it out to a gig!!! But, it’s hard to be a band nowadays without music to represent you in the wacky world of the internet, so we should be posting them soon. Stay tuned....

- We also are pleased to welcome 2 new members to this carnival of madness that we call the BLOODY JUG Band. 1st, is a guy called Adam Blackwater who seems to have made a deal with the Devil in exchange for some great lap-steel skills. He adds alot to our sound, and is one of the lucky ones cause he gets to sit down the whole time during gigs...Bastard!!!

2nd, is a masterful guitarist who I have appropriately dubbed Brian Shredder. He will be taking over the main guitar duties for us from here on out while G.T. goes and has a baby (or maybe his wife will have it, I’m really not sure how these things work)... and we could not be happier. Brian adds alot of fresh Blood to our BloodBank and we are looking forward to introducing him to our JUGly fans at next weekends gig.

AND, Since we are just like some hardcore inner city gang...where noone can actually leave the BJB roster without dying, have no fear, G.T. will still be seen in the mix contributing his ‘Good Times’ to the BJB collective...... but most likely with a rugrat in toe.

- Lastly, we have a gig on December 18th at Holly & Dolly’s... so we hope to see you there. We will be jamming with OneNightStan, and will bring a little ‘Nightmare’ before the X-mas festivities get underway....

Stay tuned to the same Bloody Channel for more updates....

Devil’s Night DEBUT for the Bloody Jug Band

Are you ready for a Jamboree from HELL!!!

After a long wait and alot of near death experiences - The Bloody Jug Band is finally ready to debut our madness to the world...and what better night for this introduction than Devil’s Night (October 30th, 2009). We are very pleased to be playing alongside many of our old friends and like-minded ghouls, and we promise a night of trauma.

So come on out and get BLOODY with us....



June 18, 2009 - Thursday
it takes alot of BLOOD to get started....

Many of you have been inquiring when we will start playing out live, posting music...etc. Well, hold your damn horses, it takes alot of blood to get this train running properly.

To give you all a status report thus far: We have rehearsals fully underway, but will not play out till we get the right amount of jugly-bastards in place. We are trying to build a dysfunctional family here, and as you all know that kind of crazy takes time. Some bands grow into a dysfunctional family over years together, while we are trying to create a strong loathing for each other right from the get-go.

We already have a few casualties and a few broken limbs....so we are off to a perfect start. Also, If anyone has an outlet for some cheap body bags please let us know. I have a feeling we are going to need them...

Anything good in life is worth getting bloody for, and we hope our fans feel the same way. We thank you all for your patience and continued support....Now go keep yourself busy by playing with sharp objects and let us get back to work...
