Todd Kwait's interest in jug band music drove him to produce at his own expense the first great film documentary on past, present, and future of the music - Chasin' Gus' Ghost. The documentary had its international debut at the 2007 San Francisco Jug Band Festival. At that festival, Todd also produced a Jug Band Extravaganza concert at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. The concert featured most of the modern artists who participated in the film project - Jim Kweskin, Geoff Muldaur, John Sebastian, David Grisman, Maria Muldaur, Dan Hicks, Suzy Thompson, and Fritz Richmond's Barbecue Orchestra. A concert CD was released in 2010.
