Steel City Jug Slammers are an American jug band from Birmingham, Alabama. The Jug Slammers are Ramblin' Ricky Tate, Washtub Jay, & G.W. Henderson.
Birmingham’s Steel City Jug Slammers provide audiences with a one of kind experience. From the moment that they take the stage, spectators will immediately take a step back in time. From their appearance, to their instruments, to the old southern banter, this group has all the charm of a century-old traveling music show fresh off the train, and will keep your attention captive from the first time you hear the blow of the jug and pluck of the tub bass.-Magic City Bands

Former members: Jerrod "The Zookeeper" Atkins, "The Mechanic" Mr. Medders, Byron Barry Tate, Tadpole, & Maxwell Honeycup.
