Our music and art is funded by many tiny streams of income, flowing into a (still unfortunately tiny) river. Buying our music, films and books is an incredibly awesome way to support us. If you click the image of an album or product below it will take you to the store which earns us the largest percentage of sales (in most cases this is Bandcamp and in some cases it is Amazon). Although most of our music is available on every major retail (and streaming) outlet, the earnings we make are significantly better through the direct links provided below. We appreciate all streams, but please realize that one song stream on Spotify earns an artist $0.00084. Please consider purchasing (and not streaming) music. Either way, your support is incredibly appreciated. If you’d like to find out other ways to keep the river flowing, click here. Thanks much!

JUG BAND HOKUM – SOUNDTRACK
Jack and Kitty directed this film and produced the “Jug Band Hokum: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” album. Lots of fun artists and tunes on this album.
JUG BAND HOKUM – DVD/VOD
From IMDb: Quirky, funny and downright bizarre, the film stars Anne Baggenstoss, Brooklynd Turner, Lil’ Majesty and Amnesia Starr. This highly anticipated documentary follows the eccentric lives of musicians competing to win a broken waffle iron in the 33rd Annual Minneapolis Battle of the Jug Bands. The film features guest appearances by Garrison Keillor (of Prairie Home Companion fame), rap legends Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Charlie Parr, Dom Flemons (of the Carolina Chocolate Drops) and many others. Film & Review Magazine described Jug Band Hokum as: ‘a real-life version of Christopher Guest’s A Mighty Wind with dashes of Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. A wildly fun documentary!’
