Meet The Subdudes.
Before there were terms like "Americana" or "roots rock," there were the Subdudes and their rich, accordion-flavored (and tambourine-spiked) musical brew that came straight out of the warmth and soul of their native New Orleans. The band came together at the legendary Tipitina's club in 1987 and took their awesomely funky blues-rock on the road for ten years, winning fans everywhere. After a seven-year hiatus, the Subdudes returned, with a couple of new members but with the core of the group and their gritty, honest sound intact. The Subdudes, noted the All Music Guide after the release of the band's recent "Street Symphony" album, "aren't just stellar musicians of the swampy jazz-rock-blues New Orleans persuasion, as they've come to be known. They're also a group of guys whose working-class roots run as definitively, and maybe as deeply, as Bruce Springsteen's."
