Jug Band Hokum is the feature length directorial debut from Emmy Award winning filmmaker and musician Jack Norton.
Quirky, funny and downright bizarre, the film stars Anne Baggenstoss, Brooklynd Turner, Lil’ Majesty and Amnesia Starr. This highly anticipated documentary follows the eccentric lives of musicians competing to win a broken waffle iron in the 33rd Annual Minneapolis Battle of the Jug Bands.
The film features guest appearances by Garrison Keillor (of Prairie Home Companion fame), rap legends Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Charlie Parr, Dom Flemons (of the Carolina Chocolate Drops), Baby Gramps, Deep Fried Pickle Project, Bones Jugs-N-Harmony and other notable roots musicians.
Film & Review Magazine described Jug Band Hokum as: “a real-life version of Christopher Guest’s A Mighty Wind with dashes of Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. A wildly fun documentary!”
