ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Outrageous Fortune is a Boston-based acoustic vintage jazz and blues trio. Their repertoire features innovative arrangements of early jazz (Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong); and blues and jug band music (Robert Johnson and the Memphis Jug Band).

“Outrageous Fortune not only revive the rich repertoire of the classic jug bands, but this expert outfit also revels in the wit, theatricality and pure fun of the genre. They are a jubilation.”
― Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald music and theater critic

We knew that Outrageous Fortune plays a variety of kinds of music, but we asked them to put together a set of jug band songs to follow the first Boston area showing of the documentary, Chasin' Gus' Ghost, a film about the origins and continuation of jug band music. Man, did they deliver! With excellent musicianship and great harmonies, they were loose but tight; as we learned from the film, just what a jug band should be.”
― Richard Taylor, President, The Folk Song Society of Greater Boston

The group features Chris Welles on guitar; Rod Thomas on harmonica; and Dan Dick on jug, bass, washboard, dobro, banjo, and mandolin. Audiences are wowed by their instrumental virtuosity and are delighted by their sweet three-part vocal harmonies, their strong groove, and the abundant joy that infuses every performance.
