The Origins of the Juke Joint and it’s influence of American Culture:
Juke Joints catered to the rural work force that began to emerge after the emancipation. Primarily African-American establishments, juke joints were opened in the southeastern United States during the era of the Jim Crow Laws. Despite the criticism they received, juke joints affected the cultural structure of the southern United States, giving African Americans a place to get away from the pressures of society, and eventually giving them a voice. The most influential aspect of juke joints was definitely the music. Some of America’s most popular music has its roots in the juke joints of the south.

Originally, the music of juke joints relied on two instruments: the fiddle and the banjo. As time progressed, however, so did the music’s style. Soon after that, came the Juke Joint Blues; Southern R&B and electric blues where the rhythm is dominant. It's hard-rocking blues, intended for dancing, and it is usually frenzied up-tempo blues or greasy slow blues. Generally, the term refers to R&B and blues singles made in the '50s and early '60s. The music of today has many different influences, but the legacy of the juke joint is very clear in popular music today.
