Smut City Jelly Roll Society

A fun-loving group of musicians, The Smut City Jellyroll Society are known for their vintage blues and early jazz from the 1920's and 1930’s. With a unique sound somewhere between ragtime blues, early jazz and jug band music, the Jellyroll Society keeps it loose and lively. The music is from a variety of sources including Bessie Smith, Memphis Jug Band, Blind Boy Fuller as well as a number of original tunes written in the style of the period.
