Gypsy Jug Band

In 2006 a concert in the foothills of Appalachia drew together people with a similar interest in music. Four of those people happened to be musicians who found themselves gathered round a fire playing music that they knew and loved. The music that was played that night was never forgotten. Shortly after that night those four strangers began practicing together and called themselves Oscar and Earl’s Travelin’ Gypsy Jug Band. For the next year they would play various venues in Southern Ohio. They moved home base to Chillicothe and shortened their name to The Gypsy Jug Band. A few years passed and the band went through some lineup changes. GJB is constantly developing and evolving with their music. Now their lineup is Roger Downs on drums, Chuck Good on bass, Dannie Sutherland on vocals, Bill Scherer on harmonica, and Brandon Fox on rhythm guitar, lead vocals.
