Raw Oyster Cult is a New Orleans swamp rock super-group that features the best of several of the greatest bands that have ever come out of the Big Easy. A number of bands have risen from the ashes of the Radiators and Raw Oyster Cult the name is a naturally N’Awlins spin on 70s classic rockers Blue Oyster Cult may be the most Radiators-like of them all. It features three former Rads guitarists Dave Malone and Camile Baudoin, and drummer Frank Bua plus Papa Grows Funk keyboardist John Papa Gros. Together, they remake favorites from the Rads repertoire, enliven songs from Gros own extensive catalog, and throw in the occasional curveball.

Sometimes inspiration strikes from the immersion of living in a far away place. The view of the ocean. The sound of a rainforest at sunrise. The smell of an open-air market. The embrace of the wild human experience. However, maybe the nostalgia for a certain place might be attributed instead to a feeling, or a time, or even a person. Sometimes, inspiration stems from a place that everyone can relate to, but maybe no one’s actually been. This is the music of The Hip Abduction, the vibrant St. Petersburg, FL-based collective that formed over a mutual appreciation for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music.
The band has shared stages with the likes of Ziggy Marley, Umphrey’s McGee, Thievery Corporation, 311, Dawes, Galactic, and .moe and has performed at Sunfest, Wanee Music Festival, Suwanee Hulaween, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Tropical Heatwave Music Festival, The BIG What? and more.

A Louisiana Supergroup composed of founding members of the Red Stick Ramblers and the Pine Leaf Boys. They are unique in that they play all styles of Cajun, zydeco, Swamp Pop, and Americana equally well. As a Supergroup, there is no leader and everyone sings and writes music. Blake Miller (accordion, fiddle, voice) is currently one of the most prolific composers of original French Cajun music. The Revelers were begun in 2010 when the ghost of Dewey Balfa came to Blake Miller in a dream and told him he had been chosen to carry the torch. The very same night, the ghost of C.C. Adcock came to drummer Glenn Fields in a middle of a yoga meditation and told him there was room for another Swamp Pop band on the scene. Prior to that day, Fields had never sung a note, but hence found himself with the voice of a golden crooner. Longtime collaborator The Chris Miller joined the band full-time in January 2013.
The Stooges Brass Band has been one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans but only recently are receiving the accolades and well deserved recognition of their importance to the music scene of New Orleans.

The band is undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans, and their dedication to their craft has made an impact.

You will not only experience great, original music at a Hub City All Stars’ concert, but you’ll witness one of the tightest bands from the swamps of Louisiana put on an energetic and soulful show.
The band began when the daughter of Dave Malone of The Radiators fame met skateboarder/guitar player Christopher Boye. The husband/wife duo wanted to create music that incorporated Darcy’s background of Soul and Pop with Chris’ love of Indie/Underground Rock n Roll. After adding band members Craig Toomey (vocals, bass), Jagon Eldridge (Saxophone, Keyboards) and Billy Schell (Drums) the two musicians got the exact fresh sound they were looking for. Incorporating a “Tangle” of genres, the band go from the Funky catchy grooves of their hit “Be A Man” to the Dynamic Rock n Roll hooks of songs like “Still Life”. Great songs combined with an intensely fun live performance make this band for everyone.
