Before there were terms like "roots rock," there were the Subdudes and their acoustic 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 famed Tipitina's club in 1987 and took their awesomely funky blues-rock on the road for ten years, winning fans everywhere. The Subdudes, noted the All Music Guide's Tammy La Gorce, "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." The Subdudes sound has persisted through several changes of personnel, and now they're back, with Steve Amedée on tambourine, making a joyful noise in the world's funkiest city and beyond.
