With instruments such as tea chest bass, mandolin, washboards, lead guitar, harmonica, rhythm guitar, kazoo, dobro and of course jug, combined with five part harmonies and occasional thong clapping, makes their foot stomping performances quite unique.

Uncle Bob’s Jug Band Established over 32 years ago and still going stronger than ever and have performed at various major Australian Festivals with several awards to their credit. The boys hail from Eumundi (home of the Markets) on the Sunshine Coast Qld.

The Juggies are the worlds most amazing, unpredictable, band of misfits that has been around since the dawn of time and has so many different members the band forgets who is who.
The jug bands diet consists of beer, grass clippings and moonshine, they have played all over the country and some members even claim they have been to other planets.
So if you haven't seen the jug band before... YOU SHOULD! Their explosive performance is not to be missed... with humour, fun and drinking.... oh and music so go check them out -: the pope.

The band began in the 1980's and has involved many members over the years including such names as: JEFF, HATZ FITZ, ERROL, DICKO, MICK, SPY, BROWNIE, LENNY, COL FITZ, among others.
