The Palmetto Bug Stompers was primarily a street band until the Old Point Bar in Algiers decided to give them a shot at playing indoors. They’ve been packing them in ever since. The band consists of Jack on cornet and vocals, Scotty Hill on trombone, Washboard Chaz on you know what and vocals, Seva Venet, electric guitar, and Robert Snow on bass. They are all pretty fair musicians but they play in a rough-hewn style that’s suited to the streets, a sound that they favor as a matter of choice. That is the kind of playing you’ll hear on this CD. The cuts are a bit uneven but that’s deliberate too. This is no slick studio makeover. Most of the tunes were done in one take and this is the band as you’ll hear it on the job. “..a snapshot in music of some good old New Orleans fun.” Offbeat April 2005
