the subdudes
Veteran NOLA quartet serves up a vibrant cauldron of  spicy grooves, jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude & folky social consciousness.

the subdudes (sic) originally came together after backing artists like Joni Mitchell and Roseanne Cash, eventually releasing a self-titled debut album in 1989. Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, they've become one of America’s national music treasures. The New Orleans-formed group is a living encapsulation of American music, a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five musicians. Led by singer/guitarist Tommy Malone and accordionist, John Magnie, The Subdudes draw most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, blending blues, gospel, funk, and R&B with their own harmony vocals; their sound is also notable for the band’s substitution of a tambourine player, Steve Amedée,  for a drummer. Tim Cook rounds out the band on bass
