Named after a street in New Orleans vibrant 9th Ward, The Deslondes bring the soul and spirit of that legendary city to life with their take on roots-rock and R&B music. Formed out of a revolving cast of young roots musicians from bands like The Tumbleweeds, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and The Longtime Goners, most of the band’s current members originally met at the annual Woody Guthrie music festival in Oklahoma. Combine that shared interest in folk music with the band’s diverse musical backgrounds and you get a heady mixture that is distinctly New Orleans. The band stopped in to play a few songs off their new record, Hurry Home, out June 23rd.
