The Juke Joint Devils is an old school Jump (blues) and Swing combo whose musical style draws heavily from the Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans blues of the 1950s, as well as the modern West Coast style of today. In addition to quintessential jump and swing chestnuts of the past, the band performs similarly styled, self-penned numbers rooted in post war blues (‘50s) and infused with a twist informed by the modern American experience.
