La Honey Island Swamp Band viene da San Francisco (CA), ma non lasciatevi ingannare. Con uno stile definito “Bayou Americana”, la formazione è composta da musicisti originari della città della Louisiana approdati in California dopo le devastazioni dell’uragano Katrina, i quali,  nella speranza di poter un giorno tornare nella loro amata New Orleans, portano il blues lungo la costa occidentale del grande continente Americano e in giro per il mondo. Preparatevi a un sound molto soulful paragonabile a quello dei leggendari gruppi blues-roots-rock The Allman Brothers e Little Feat and The Band.

A Road to Spiagge Soul li ascolteremo in versione full band e in set acustici.

From the pristine waters of the Honey Island Swamp, to the vibrant streets of New Orleans, to the hazy corner of Haight-
Asbury in San Francisco, this band has endured devastation, relocation, and revitalization. A group whose sound has been tagged “Bayou Americana,” the Honey Island Swamp Band formed in San Francisco, CA via New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina displaced the founding members.  With little hope of returning to their beloved city, the band channeled the blues and emotions of their circumstances to develop a soulful style and sound that critics have compared to legendary Blues-Roots-Rock Artists such as The Allman Brothers, Little Feat and The Band.
