The Hottest New Orleans Funk and Soul Band in the UK


With their dedication to what they like to refer to as “Swamp Soul” this brilliant 7 piece band bring the rhythm and soul of New Orleans alive, playing songs ranging from Professor Longhair to Allen Toussaint, Mardi gras parade anthems to Fats Domino Rock & Roll classics and the swampy funk of The Meters and Dr John. They take their name from the Toussaint/Dorsey song 'Working In A Coalmine.'
