Notty’s Jug Serenaders


DSC01977I saw the poster just off the main square in Konstanz, Germany, on my recent visit.

I thought with a name like that they must be British but after searching the internet it seems they might be German.

In fact the YouTube video I found was recorded in Wessenberg Street, which is in the middle of the old town in Konstanz, back in 2009 when they were a four-piece band performing “Kansas City Blues”.

In this poster they’re playing a resonator guitar, what looks like a cigar-box bass guitar, and what I thought was a small flugelhorn but which I am reliably informed is a cornet, or possibly a pocket trumpet (whatever it is it’s made of brass and you blow into it).

  1. Its not a flugelhorn but a cornet.

  2. Ah, thanks. I thought it looked a bit short in the body!

  3. Having had a closer look at the picture I think I was wrong, I now think it is a pocket trumpet which was often played by the great Jazz artist Don Cherry.
