The Bloody Jug Band at The Social, located at 54 North Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida, during the Florida Music Festival on April 26, 2014. The Florida Music Festival, or FMF, was founded by aXis Magazine & Promotions in 2002 as a three day music festival and conference that showcases unsigned artists while promoting major national acts. The Bloody Jug Band is an eight-piece band that formed in Orlando in 2009, whose music combines elements of folk, blues, country, bluegrass, rock, and Americana. Drawing inspiration from historic jug bands of the 1920s and 1930s, the group employs traditional jug band instruments, such as a washboard, washtub bass, cajón, spoons, mandolin and harmonica, and incorporates acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and drums. The band consists of John Theisen (Cragmire Peace) on vocals and washboard, Stormy Jean Casselman (Stormy Jean) on vocals and cowbell, Brian Blodgett (Brian Shredder) on acoustic guitar and mandolin, Seth Ambler (Seth Funky) on washtub bass, Rick Lane (Bloody Rick) on harmonica, Jermichael Duffy (Big Daddy Jerm, Dracula Mohammad) on jug, percussion and kazoo, Dakota Butts (Baby Dingo) on cajón and spoons, and Steven Marshall (Ste-evil) on electric guitar and banjo. Raymond Krugh (DeathRay) took over on electric guitar briefly while Marshall spent time with his newborn baby. The band has performed across the Southeastern United States, sharing the stage with notable acts such as Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band, Joe Buck, Edwin McCain, 3 Bad Jacks, and Old Man Markley. In 2013, the band appeared in a music video for the song, "Timber," by hip-hop recording artists Pitbull and Kesha. The first photograph features Theisen and Lane. The rest of the photographs show individual band members Butts, Lane, Duffy, Theisen, and Casselman, respectively.
