The Christmas Jug Band — “the kings of 100 percent acoustic folk-skiffle-swing holiday highjinks” — brings its offbeat holiday cheer to The Palms on Sunday.

Featuring an all-star lineup of NorCal musicians, including Paul Rogers (of Those Darn Accordions), Austin de Lone (Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Bill Kirchen) and Tim Eschilman (Commander Cody Band), the Christmas Jug Band performs original holiday numbers, parodies of unlikely classics (“SANTA!” to the tune of “Gloria”), and raucous jugbandizations of seasonal favorites.

Together for more than 20 years, the band’s material ranges from holiday pop and jazz classics such as “Winter Wonderland” and “Merry Christmas, Baby” to more offbeat tunes such as “Santa Lost a Ho,” “Daddy’s Drinkin’ Up Our Christmas,” “Santa Claus Wants Some Lovin’,” “Somebody Stole My Santa Claus Suit” and “Santa Don’t Do It,” a song urging Santa not shave his beard even though Mrs. Claus wants him to.

An evening with the Christmas Jug Band is big-time fun in the form of woozy vocals accompanied by harmonicas, rub boards, washtub basses, jugs, kazoos, accordions and scuffed-up guitars.

The Christmas Jug Band will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. Tickets are $20 and are available at Armadillo Music, 205 F St. in Davis; Watermelon Music, 527 Main St. in Woodland; and Pacific Ace Hardware, 35 Main St. in Winters.

For more information, call (530) 795-1825 or visit palmsplayhouse.com or christmasjugband.com.
