Formed by members of The Stumblebum Brass Band & Amour Obscur, 2 guys that have respectively been in New Orleans for no more than 5 days each and those memories have been erased by whiskey consumption. They have managed to capture the NOLA sound so well that they recently made a NOLA native living in New York for the past 10 years so nostalgic for home that she cried right there on the street where they were busking. Classic blues like Saint James Infirmary, reworked modern pop songs, and originals about everything from drinking too much to being rejected by a burlesque dancer to having a love/hate relationship with Xmas are all in their repertoire. There's something for everyone, and you are guaranteed to be drinking and dancing. Soulful blues accordion like you've never heard backs up a gruff Louie Armstrong esque croon with growley nasty trumpet solos and upbeat marching style drums to keep you going.
