Doors: 7pm Show: 8pm

With Special Guest Shana Morrison
Featuring members of The Christmas Jug Band, Back pOrchEstra, and Dan Hicks’ Holidaze in Hicksville

We have assembled a quite a talented cast of characters to bring you your musical holiday wackiness in a show called “A Back Porch Jug Band Christmas”, featuring members of The Christmas Jug Band, Back pOrchEstra and Dan Hick’s Holidaze in Hicksville. Performing this year are Greg Dewey, Tim Eschliman, Snakebite Jacobs, Candy Girard, Paul Robinson, Henry Salvia and Paul Olguin. This new show for 2022 includes a good handful of Dan’s humorous holiday tunes, some of his other classics, a few Back pOrchEstra tracks (2022 album), and many CJB hits including the relatively recent holiday single: “Christmas On the Moon,” poking fun at space billionaires. Special guest tba.

NOTE: Some of the jug band personnel were not able to commit this year due to family and business issues… that doesn’t mean they absolutely won’t make it, but currently are unlikely.
