Honey Island Swamp Band
Take a late-night stroll through downtown New Orleans and you'll hear a thousand flavours of music spill from the clubs. Spin the new album by the Crescent City's new favourite sons, meanwhile, and you'll hear a band who embody that eclectic spirit. "There are songs here for every mood, occasion or playlist," explains Honey Island Swamp Band's Aaron Wilkinson of Demolition Day, "so hopefully it will appeal to a lot of musical tastes. Just make sure you turn it up loud..."

Aaron Wilkinson (acoustic guitar/mandolin/vocals), Chris Mulé (electric guitar/vocals), Sam Price (bass/vocals) and Garland Paul (drums/vocals) were already on nodding terms from their hometown circuit, but when the four men joined forces for a weekly residency at San Francisco's Boom Boom Room, the chemistry was undeniable. By 2009, the lineup had released award-winning debut Wishing Well, enlisted Hammond B-3 wizard Trevor Brooks and placed one foot onto the podium of New Orleans greats.

Fans will enjoy the authentic Southern rock sounds of Goodwood Jams veterans Tishamingo. Originally from Tallahassee, the members of Tishamingo reunite several times a year and are excited to be playing in their hometown. Tishamingo includes Jess Franklin (guitar/vocals), Cameron Williams (guitar/vocals), Stephen Spivey (bass), Richard Proctor (drums), and long time friend and special guest Jason Fuller on keyboards.
