Thoughts On The End Of The South Austin Jug Band

I am going to miss the South Austin Jug Band. I missed the old SAJB when Will and Willie left the band in the middle of 2007 and now I'm going to miss the new SAJB.

In any form, I was never let down by a SAJB show whether there was a hundred people in the crowd or fifteen. I can't say that about many bands.

The "South Austin Hug Band", although gone from the newer lineups, always maxed out the value for your entertainment dollar. I don't know if the guys in the band care about their legacy, but like other Austin bands that were gone from the scene after a prolific run, their legacy of great songs and great players will live on in my cd player and iPod for a long, long time.

In case you're interested, there are thirteen live shows housed in the Live Music section of Enjoy.

My favorites are from the Nutty Brown and from Will's last show.
