Jugalug Stringband is music to swing to

THEY'VE got more instruments than you can poke a stick - or a string - at.

The Jugalug Stringband formed in 2005 for a quick gig in a restaurant in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

According to legend, everyone was so into the music that even the cooks left the kitchen to dance, so the band decided to stay together.

After more than a decade of making music together, the band's repertoire of swing music, based on the styles of early string and jug bands of the 1920s and 1930s, had made them internationally sought after as leaders in their swingin' field.

Jugalug Stringband has performed regularly at Aussie jazz festivals and released three cracking albums; now they've embarked on an east coast tour to let us see them do their thing live at the Bellingen Golf Club on December 1.

For all the instruments, get googling: the Jugalug Stringband features national, uke and lap steel guitars, strohviol and mandolin washboard.
