Countdown to Bonnaroo: 15 Days – Artist of the Day: Honey Island Swamp Band

22 May

When day four at Bonnaroo rolls around and you hear a party going on at The Great Taste Lounge stage, that will be the sweet sound of New Orleans courtesy of the Honey Island Swamp Band.  While there are more than enough terrible memories of Hurricane Katrina, we are starting to hear about more and more wins, successes and revitalization as a result and one is definitely Honey Island Swamp Band.  With a chance encounter in San Francisco after evacuating New Orleans, the band was formed, gigs were nailed down and record was released.  Since, the band has returned to New Orleans and continues to put smiles on people’s faces and lead funky dance parties.  If you’re down to discover some new music I highly recommend you take a leap and listen to these rockers and start your own little get down jam session.
