"What kind of music do you play?" It's a question we gets asked a lot. It can be a hard question to answer, because there isn't really a category that we fit conveniently in. We are influenced by a variety of genres including blues, ragtime, hokum, bluegrass, old timey, and jug band music. One thing is for sure: our music would fit in nicely in the 1920s and 1930s.
We were formed in 2012 and it really started as an experiment as much as anything. We had an old National guitar, a washboard, and a couple of kazoos and decided to play the local farmers' markets and street corners. From the beginning, it was obvious that something special was going on. Maybe it was that very few musicians play this kind of music anymore. Maybe it was the suitcase bass drum or even the kazoo. We really don't know. What we do know for sure is that people absolutely love what we do.
The great thing is that our music appeals to just about everyone :-)
We sure appreciate everyone comin' to visit us here on the internets! If you haven't had the pleasures of experiencing The Knobtown Skiffle Band durin' showtime, yer in for a real treat. We will take you down the tracks as if we were back in the 1920's again. That ain't no joke neither.
We love what we do and sure are grateful for all of the support ya'll have offered us up. Everytime we get out there we are gettin' to meet a whole new heap of new people and we just have a great time doin' it.
Come and see us sometime, book us, look at us on the youtube, and don't forget to foller us on the facebookie!
Anything that has to do with the 'ol banking system such as money you will find here. Things like Knobtown apparel, music for your ipad, ipod, peapod, i-this or i-that to fill your earholes, some old whiskey jugs, and maybe even a set of rusty strings and a tin can from a past show...it can be found here.
Supper's ready! Come-n-get it!
