Think the Band’s Big Pink album and add a splash of hot sauce with “Willin’” by Little Feat—this group of New Orleans vagabonds nails it.

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.

Their latest album, Demolition Day, marks the 10-year anniversary of the Honey Island Swamp Band, which formed in San Francisco 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, and rock artists such as the Allman Brothers, Little Feat, and the Band.

“We’re diverse and complex people,” explains Chris Mule, the band’s guitarist, “and our audiences are as well. So we try to let our music reflect that.”
