June 26, 2015 · 9:30pm
The Deslondes (formerly Tumbleweeds) are a New Orleans-based country-soul, swamp-boogie band. They combine elements of early Stax, Sun and Atlantic records with the influence of a more raw, stripped-down sound gleaned off field recordings from Alan Lomax and Mississippi Records catalogue.
Carrying on the traveling country-troubadour tradition of artists like Woody Guthrie and Hank Williams, the band is comprised of songwriters Sam Doores and Riley Downing, bassist Dan Cutler, pedal steel-fiddle player John James and percussionist-vocalist Cameron Snyder. Following their first studio album Holy Cross Blues (2012), the Deslondes toured with the Alabama Shakes and have opened for high-profile artists such as the Lumineers and John Fullbright. Their material is catchy, high energy, and harmony-driven.
Come boogie the night away to some genuine New Orleans country-soul!
