The Subdudes Mix Gumbo 'Behind the Levee'
When the Subdudes got back together in 2002, fans of their musical gumbo rejoiced. Four years later, the band is running strong with a style of roots-rock that is made to be played live. Their latest CD was produced by Keb Mo.
An homage to old New Orleans -- the band first played there in 1987 -- Behind the Levee relies on guitar, accordion and tambourine to back up the well-shaped harmonies of singer Tommy Malone and his fellow singers.
With elements of bluegrass and zydeco accenting a time-tested approach to rock, the band -- Malone, John Magnie, Steve Amedée, Tim Cook and Jimmy Messa -- bridge the gap between their roots, which extend from New Orleans to Denver and beyond.
