Comprehensively in your face.  Like a Muppet with a really bad attitude. These are just some of the words used to describe the utterly intoxicating Juke Baritone as he’s been travelling the world with his rascally troupe of manic noise-makers, assaulting audiences with his tall tales of bad love, good times and the evils of the world. Accordions wail. Horns scream. Guitars screech.

And the room goes wild as they dance and chant along to this uniquely Australian sounding psycholonial stomp. It’s certifiably, incurably insane and it sounds bloody marvellous! If you can think about Tom Waits and Cab Calloway drinking themselves into a stupor before moving to New Orleans and forming a punk band then you might be getting close to a hint of what Juke Baritone & The Swamp Dogs sound like.

It is impossible to pigeonhole. Gypsy, jazz, rock, dub, punk, folk, reggae, blues and everything in between are mashed together into a unique and original sound. Friday 6 January at Coorabell Hall.

Tickets: $17 Pre / $20 Door. Available: www.kupromotions.com.au. Doors: 7.30pm / Show: 8pm. Food by Open Table.
