Half Moon Jug Band Submitted photo

Half Moon Jug Band, a 21st-century jug band rooted in the Downeast humor and dry wit traditions of their home state o’ Maine, will entertain at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 14, at Denmark Arts Center.

Upbeat and positive, they are a three-man musical mob of desperadoes hijacking the plodding freight train of folk music, steaming it up the mountains of rock ‘n roll, through the vaudeville pass, and down across the valley of country music before wrecking it in the middle of a rubber chicken farm on the outskirts of town.

The Half Moon Jug Band weapons of choice: guitars, banjos, mandolins, hefty bass riffs and rotund sing-along choruses. But they’re no bluegrass band; they also wield mighty kazoos, trumpets, harmonicas and thumping drums.

Tickets for this event are $15. For reservations and more information go online at denmarkarts.org/events.
