The Juggernauts also played the Sacramento Jubilee this year over the 
Memorial Day Long Weekend.

The Boondockers (a Sacramento based jazz/skiffle/washboard Band) have played 
the International Washboard Festival in Logan Ohio for several years right 
alongside the Juggernauts, who do indeed hail from Kentucky. As a matter of 
fact, we even have a little "friendly rivalry" going between the Juggers and 
the Boondockers. But it's all in fun - - we really love our rustic friends 
from the Kentucky hills.

And I would like to say this about the Juggernaut Jazz Band -- Simply 
because the Juggernaut Jazz guys have just recently learned to wear shoes 
and eat with a knife and fork is no reason to accuse them of being " . . . a 
bit too slick for some people's tastes." And just how "Slick" can a band be 
that actually does a tribute to Elvis Presley with Jugger Roscoe Goose 
performing the gyrations.

Respectfully submitted,

a-goin'" Gunter
