The Ragged Jubilee are a Blues/Garage/Rock band. Embracing the raw sound and energy from classic rock such as Led Zeppelin and The Doors, they have created their own style and passion for anything that gets feet stompin' and bodies moving.


The Ragged Jubilee is a Garage Blues band based in San Luis Obispo, CA. They gather influence from various decades and genres of music, from artists ranging from Buddy Guy to Black Sabbath, and Booker T to ODB. Embracing the raw sound and energy of classic rock, they have created their own style and passion for anything that gets feet stompin' and bodies moving. Live shows are filled with a booming bass/rhythm section, and powerful guitar. But what really makes it a unique experience is the expressive power of lead singer Ethan Burns. His vocals are driven with a soulful introspection that you will feel. No show is exactly the same but the band is always guaranteed to bring relentless energy and musicianship that is impossible to ignore and is both unique and powerful.

The Ragged Jubilee formed in 2008. They quickly recorded their first self-titled EP that year. From there the band gained quick local popularity. In 2010 they recorded at Modern Music Academy in San Luis Obispo, CA. With their first album out they started to book their own tours across the U.S. They played with many acts including Will Hoge, Dirks Bently, Eli Young band, NOFX, The Drums, White Buffalo, Nathaniel Radliff, Deep Sea Diver and many more. In 2011 Wesley Jensen, of Wesley Jensen and the Penny Arcade, helped record and produce their second studio album at Whiskey Hound Studios in Redding, CA. The band's popularity took off in 2012. Vincent Kardasik featured a song by The Ragged Jubilee in one of his short films which in return introduced France to The Ragged Jubilee. In 2013 the band took a hiatus to focus on solo projects and other endeavors. In 2015 the band called off the hiatus and wrote a new album set for release in October 2015.
