The name alone should be enough to indicate that these Americana/roots rockers call New Orleans home. Inspired by the soul of the bayou and the resilience of Louisiana’s residents, the Honey Island Swamp Band emanate blues and soul, inspired by the displacement they experienced after Hurricane Katrina, and a longing to return to their beloved home. Their spirited sound garners comparisons to the likes of The Allman Brothers, Little Feat and The Band. They released their fifth recording, Demolition Day, in 2016, a triumphant, hopeful record about starting over and new beginnings.
The band is featured in our latest NOLA vinyl package.
