Welcome to the official website of The Original Rabbit Foot Spasm Band - Jump Blues and Vintage Jazz.


We play original music - and we have also have a penchant for reviving obscure material played by our musical heroes - Nat Gonella, Al Bowlly, George Formby, Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Sidney Bechet, Lonnie Johnson, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Jabbo Smith - and The Memphis Jug Band, to name but a few.


Buy tickets for our upcoming tour dates - dance to our latest record releases - marvel at our videos - and get all the latest, highly censored news on the band. To find our why we're called The Original Rabbit Foot Spasm Band click on the blue Tumblr icon.
