Soggy Po’ Boys

Soggy Po Boys are a traditional jazz band that reach deep into the New Orleans catalog to create their own sound. The band offsets the standard dixie repertoire by drawing from the second line and caribbean-creole influences from the Crescent City. While honoring a vast tradition, the Po Boys have also written and recorded several records of original music.
