Happy Holidays Honeys & Swamp Rats!

We hope y’all are stayin’ warm (or cool) wherever the Holidays find you this year!  And in the spirit of the season, we have a lot to be thankful for.  First and foremost, we are thankful for all of you.  Your support this year has led not only to the launch and success of our new album, Cane Sugar, this past July, but also got our Bus, and Us, back out on the road touring, thanks to your support through our Pledge The Music Campaign.  We hope all of you who pledged are enjoying your T-Shirts, Guitars, Lyric Sheets, CDs and more.  Music really is about the fans, and we sure have the best fans around.  “Thank You” just doesn’t seem enough, but there it is.

It’s thanks to all of you that Cane Sugar has enjoyed the success that it has.  Here's what some of the critics are saying:

HISB rocks the Bourbon Street Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil August 2013!

In addition to the excitement of the new record, we also took HISB international this past August.  We were honored to play in Sao Paolo Brazil at the Bourbon Street Music Club, where we were welcomed by such amazing music lovers. We are happy to report we not only made new fans, but new friends as well.  Let’s hope this is a taste of things to come!

Speaking of things to come…  January of 2014 will have us taking up the Wednesday Night Residency at The Maple Leaf (www.mapleleafbar.com) so come on out to Oak street and grab a bite nearby and then we’ll see you out on the dance floor.  We really enjoy this month of shows, as it gives us a chance to dig deep into our songbook and play with some fun special guests! Don’t miss it!

And you definitely won’t want to miss us at Tipitina's on Friday January 18th. The Radiators are at it again for their annual birthday bash and we are so glad to have been asked to support them once again.

Meanwhile, we’re going to finish off 2013 in style, with two New Orleans shows on Dec 31st!  You can catch us down in Jackson Square at the Crescent City Countdown with our friend Eric Lindell, as well as appearances by local celebrities and the New Year’s Saints Baby!  We’ll be taking the stage at 10:30pm and wrapping-up just in time for the final countdown!  This is New Year’s Eve, New Orleans Style!  Fireworks, Fleur de Lis & HISB, so come on down http://www.crescentcitycountdown.com.  

By the stroke of midnight the party will just be getting started!  After the Countdown we’ll be headed down to the Blue Nile http://bluenilelive.com , where we’ll take the stage around 1:30am and bring the good stuff into the wee hours.  For those who want to start the celebration a bit earlier be at d.b.a (http://www.dbaneworleans.com/) on 12/27 with a rockin’ Friday night show!  Wear your Holiday flair, we won’t mind!

Finally, we’ve got some good news for our Florida Fans.  We are headed your way for a quick late January show in Boca Raton at The Funky Biscuit on the 23rd  - this will be the one and only public show on this run so gather your peeps and don’t miss it!  Look for plenty of other dates in the region this spring - stay tuned to www.honeyislandswampband.com .

And don’t worry Midwest, West-Coast, Northeast and beyond, we’ll be headed your way soon enough.  We’ve got a ton of great gigs in the works for 2014 and we are looking forward to another great year!  Doin’ what we do and bringin’ it to you!
