Wahoo Skiffle Crazies - Self Titled Album - 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Wahoo Skiffle Crazies hail from Staten Island, where the hills of the eastern seaboard’s highest elevation meet the swamps of New York State’s southernmost tip. Known well as “The Island’s Premier Jug Band”™, they are, in fact, the Island’s only jug band.

Whether playing on the beach beneath the Verrazano Bridge, or on stage in one of Manhattan’s bars, these eight zany musicians offer audiences something completely different. Remorseless fun and entertainment, and perhaps a sense of (wholesome) shock are the rule.

The group’s founding four members have been playing together with homemade instruments for over two years. Since the spring of 2004, audiences, both young and not so young, have treasured their unique sound, their wild energy, and repertoire spanning the centuries – from ragtime, blues, traditional folk, and Sixties rock to near anything in the Jug band cannon, as well as numerous originals.
