As part of the Office of Student Activities’ retro-themed May Week, which celebrates Ohio State Lima’s 50th Anniversary, the Juggernaut Jug Band performs live on the Quad. The Juggernaut’s have performed since the 1960s using washboards, washtubs, kazoos and jugs to create original music with undertones of jazz, blues, ragtime and swing. Jug band music originated in the late 1800s, primarily by African American musicians who made music with homemade instruments. The craze swept up and down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, peaking in the 1930s, then later being re-introduced during the folk revival of the 1960s. This music also provides a preview to the kind of musical entertainment that will be performed during Ohio Chautauqua 2011 on the Ohio State Lima campus, July 6-10, 2011. (Lima.OSU.edu/Chautauqua). This event is co-sponsored by PALS and the Office of Student Activities.
