Presented by members of the California Jug Band Association www.jugfest.org
In this workshop we’ll explore “Jug Hero” by Shawna Hein from the School of Information at UC-Berkeley. “Jug Hero” is a game inspired by the Guitar Hero series of video games. It extends Guitar Hero's rich interaction and performative role-playing to a new musical genre, jug band music. American jug band music is less about self-glorification, and more about group-focused fun and sociability. Besides switching genres, the game is more collaborative rather than competitive by having the players work together to get points, and having several combined activities.
