Twenty-five years after the release of their first album, the Subdudes decided to reunite. “No ordinary band,” the allmusic website calls them, praising their “relaxed groove,” “earthy harmonies,” and “impassioned vocal performances.” “If you haven't heard the Subdudes before,” says about.com, “imagine the hottest, most humid day you can think of. You're sitting on the edge of the Mississippi River, two-thirds of the way through a daiquiri, and there's just something in the air that makes you want to get up and groove.” The band’s soulful, joyous sound captures the fun and funk of their native New Orleans.

The original members of the band – Tommy Malone on guitar, John Magnie on accordion, Steve Amedée on tambourine and other percussion, and the late Johnny Ray Allen on bass – came together after backing Joni Mitchell and Roseanne Cash. The Subdudes have released 11 albums, and lately they’ve been featured on the HBO series Treme. Tonight’s show will be a memorial for Johnny Ray, who died in New Orleans on August 8 at the age of 56. Longtime road manager Tim Cook will play bass. Come on out and help the Subdudes celebrate the life of Johnny Ray and let the good times roll one more time!
