Denver, Colorado, USA

SlakJaw is a punk-rock jug band. We are purveyors of a sound known as "bum-core." We sing about booze and bums, Our instrumentation includes washtub bass, washboard, and a kazoo. We write catchy, whiskey-drenched, foot-stompin' tunes--and we can go toe-to-toe with any punk band on the circuit.


SlakJaw's mission is to create great jug-band music with a rowdy bar-band attitude. The band played its first show in 2006, and has gone on to play practially every venue along Colorado's Front Range. Slakjaw has also shared the stage with national acts such as John Doe, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, The Detroit Cobras, Tim Barry, and many more.


Old Joe Clark

Written By: Traditional

Old Joe Clark is dead and gone
Now I wish him well
Made me wear that ball and chain
That made my ankle swell

Round round Old Joe Clark
Round round I say
Round round Old Joe Clark
I'm gonna leave today....
