Storyline

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) and many others. 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!'

Super fun and OHM>>>>........
28 October 2015 | by johnnymnsterSee all my reviews

What a good movie! I have lived in Minneapolis all my life and never heard about the jug band competition. After seeing the film I am surprised. The people in the film are fun and interesting. Although there is a concentration on 3 people, the supporting cast could be their own film as they are very interesting and fun also! The music is awesome and the camera work and production top notch! I don't want to write any spoilers, but you have to stay through the credits so you can see a rising rap stars premier video. I almost felt bad sometimes for all that had to brave the cold, but the attitudes made it seem like it isn't so bad. Thanks Jack and Kitty for making this film!
