Tennessee Mafia Jug Band invades Cannon County
Placeholder Image
From the pastoral hills, hollers, shopping malls and interstate highways of Goodlettsville Tennessee, home of Bill Monroe, Bashful Brother Oswald, Stringbean, Grandpa Jones, Keith Whitley and some living country music performers, comes the most entertaining “blast from the past” since Lester Moran and the Cadillac Cowboys. They’re the Tennessee Mafia Jug Band– five guys and a scrubboard, with roots like wisdom teeth.They will be performing at the Arts Center of Cannon County Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Tennessee Mafia Jug Band have shamelessly stolen a feature of the old Roy Acuff Show– a bit known as “Pap & the Jug Band.“ There’s only so many graveyard numbers or raunchy love songs that even the most rabid country audience can sit through without some kind of relief. This frolicking foursome brightens up the stage with rib-tickling old time tunes.
