Honey Island Swamp Band  Puts NOLA Spin on Green Parrot Weekend

New Orleans-based  Island Swamp Band, recent recipients of two of the Crescent City’s prestigious Best of The Beat Awards for Best Emerging Artist and Best Blues Album will return to the Green Parrot with shows at 5:30 and 10 PM on Friday and Saturday, February 27th and 28th, and 5:30 PM on Sunday, March 1st.

For most of the past decade, Aaron Wilkinson and Chris Mulé established themselves as top-notch musicians and songwriters, most notably as members of the Eric Lindell Band.  Collaborations between all three musicians have been favorites of DJs in major US markets, internationally and on both Sirius and XM satellite stations over the past year.
After years of touring around the country and around the world in support of Lindell’s releases and with various other bands, Wilkinson and Mulé formed the Honey Island Swamp Band as a vehicle for a huge backlog of original songs the two had written but never recorded. The band came together in San Francisco, where both musicians were marooned after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. They have since become staples on The Green Parrot roster and never fail to please.
