    Memphis Jug Band (Will Shade, Ben Ramey, Charles Polk, Will Weldon)

    Heroes of the Blues Trading Tee Card #21

    Art by R. Crumb, Text by Stephen Calt

    The Memphis Jug Band was organized by singer-guitarist Will Shade, also known as Son Brimmer, who was born in 1898 and spent most of his life in Memphis. Other members of the band included musicians Ben Ramey, Charles Polk and Will Weldon. Between 1927 and 1934 the group recorded nearly seventy-five sides, many of them infectiously up-tempo pieces. Their "Bottle It Up and Go" of 1932 became a blues standard of that decade. Shade died in 1966.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Keep on Truckin' Apparel exclusive t-shirt will be donated to Music Maker Relief Foundation.
