The Jukejoint Handmedowns were established in 2010 as a duo act by founding members Nathan James and Tim Foley. They describe themselves as a 'Big Tent' American Roots group whose eclectic set list mixes old school country & western, 70's AM pop radio hits, jazz standards, rock and roll, an extensive catalog of original material, and just about anything else that strikes their fancy. Expanding to a trio in 2011 with the addition of Paul Harris on pedal steel guitar, and then to a quartet in 2012 when Craig Van Otteren signed on as Mandolin/3rd Harmony, this entertaining group, with their country/bluegrass instrumentation, three part harmonies and suprising song choices are a hit with young and old alike.

Dateline: September 11, 2017
JJHD FOURTH ALBUM 'CALL OF THE WILD' RELEASED

The Jukejoint Handmedowns’ follow up to their award-winning third album “Jukejoint Handmedowns Sing Songs of Death, Murder & the Afterlife,” takes on a decidedly brighter topic: their home state of Michigan. On their newest record, “Call of the Wild,” the boys celebrate everything Michigan, from its natural beauty (’The Water’, ‘Great Lakes State of Mind’), local industry (’Buicks Chevys & Oldsmobiles’, ‘Beer City USA’), to its generous bottle return policy (’Aluminum Blues’).

To honor the Mitten State’s rich musical legacy, the Jukejoint Handmedowns supplemented their American Roots sound with hints of the sweet horns and harmonies of Motown, the gritty garage sound of Ann Arbor and Detroit, and polka from the halls of the west side of Grand Rapids.


While hardly a ‘rose colored glasses’ tribute, the album features the band’s trademark tongue-in-cheek humor and paints the Great Lakes State with an affectionate but fine-tipped brush, that will bring a smile of recognition to anyone who has ever held up the palm of their hand to show where their ‘home town’ is located.

Besides being available at our live shows, the album is also available as a digital download on the usual online outlets (CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon, etc) and will soon likely be available at local retailers. You can also purchase online and we will ship the disc to you.
