“Trashcan Joe is a marvel, a wonder that defies categorization in any sort of contemporary setting.” - Don Campbell, The Oregonian

Trashcanjo n. [trash kan jo] A banjo made out of a trashcan. Ideology based on maximum musical output from recycled minimum input. Coffee brewed in a trash can.

Soaring vocal harmonies and modern song writing set in a soundscape harkening to the early jazz era, Trashcan Joe has a unique sound with a broad appeal. The instruments are all original and homemade from recycled and found objects. The group has been widely embraced as one of the most signature 1920s-style jazz and blues fixtures in the popular swing scene. They have performed at Pickathon, Burning Man, Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Live Wire, the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle and Oregon Country Fair, and they were the house band for Candidates Gone Wild at the Roseland Theater.
