Beat the Monday's Vol 13!

Lucky number 13 we had to find something special...and this is it. I've been following this band for the last few years, and they never cease to amaze me. I first saw them a few years back when I had my art hanging at a local venue where The White Buffalo was going to play a show...The Ragged Jubilee opened (one of their first shows I believe) and I was hooked ever since. They came along on our California Surf Project book tour down to the Hurley headquarters and blew everyone away. These guys were all born and raised in my hometown and they are hands down the best music to come out of SLO county. They've got an album out right now you won't regret investing in, you'll probably be able to consider yourselves one of the elite who had a chance to discover this band before they made it huge. I've been trying to get together with them to shoot some portraits, can't wait to make it happen.

here's an amazing acoustic version with Ethan Burns solo:

Here the band is all together singing the same song in all their glory:

Here's a little info on them:
The Ragged Jubilee are a Six piece Blues/Rock n' Roll band from San Luis Obispo, CA. Embracing the raw sound and energy from classic rock such as Led Zeppelin and The Doors, they have created their own style and passion for anything that gets feet stompin' and bodies moving. Live shows are filled with cutting banjo, a booming bass/rhythm section, and integrated guitar, organ, and percussion. What really makes it a unique experience is the expressive power of lead singer Ethan Burns. His vocals are filled with soulful introspection that you will feel. No show is exactly the same, but the band is always guaranteed to bring relentless energy and musicianship that is impossible to ignore.
