April Mae & The June Bugs * Special Quartet Show *
“With a sound built on cigar-box guitar, slap bass, washboard (and the swingin’est skins) no act is more fun, taking familiar roots genres and twisting them around Mae’s elbow-gloved, gold capped fingers.”
– Mary Armstrong, The City Paper.
Featured in Jon Miller’s documentary film on American Roots instruments “Strung Together” on Amazon,
April Mae & The June Bugs’ varied mix of high energy and expansive breadth of genre-bending stylings, has made them a beloved act along the eastern seaboard and the deep south. Resonating with swing dancers, folkies, cigar box guitar enthusiasts and rockabillies alike.
Regular performers at the prestigious Philadelphia Folk Festival, the New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival, often dubbed the “The Breakout Surprise Act” by concert reviewing journalists, the group has garnered quite a reputation as a result of their extensive touring history. Having traveled much of the country in Mae’s innovative and award-winning Boogie Bus, a diesel school bus that she re-designed in vintage 1940’s whimsical style and converted to run on waste vegetable oil, with a zero carbon emission footprint. Dubbed the Boogie Bus for the musical mantra “It’s All About The Boogie” painted on the destination plate.
Blending Americana, vintage swing, rockabilly and jump blues with smoke ‘n honey vocals, washboard, cigar box guitar, banjo, mandolin and upright bass. Serving up high energy deep vintage vibes is their specialty.
On their travels they’ve performed with many musicians including Pete Seeger, Rockabilly Hall of Famer J.M. Van Eaton, Eric Frey of the Revelers/Red Stick Ramblers, and New Orleans’ Washboard Chaz. Supporting lineups include Wanda Jackson, Imelda May, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, and Justin Johnson among others.
