From the writers and performers of the theme song for the popular Discovery Channel reality show American Guns, Swamp Cabbage has been invited to SXSW to share their North Florida fatback boogaloo blues and trailer parks funk. Humorously christened “the best band nobody’s ever heard of ” by fans on their recent tour of Spain, this trio is nonetheless engorged with marquee value. For 10 years, bandleader Walter Parks was sideman to Woodstock legend Richie Havens playing such rooms as Madison Square Garden and Carnegie Hall. Bassist Jim Devito records all of JJ Grey and Mofro’s fine albums. Drummer Jagoda played on T Bone Burnett’s recent record Tooth of Crime. If you like early ZZ Top, The Meters, Dr John, Tom Waits, Tony Joe White, Mofro and The Black Keys this is an old-school rootsadelic roadshow performed on analog vintage instruments that is not to be missed. Swamp Cabbage’s song are also featured on such shows as Man vs Food and My Big Redneck Wedding.
