Walter Parks - singing + picking
Jagoda - beating
Jim Devito – thumping
An electric blues trio inspired by the swampy gospel blues that wails from storefront churches and roadhouses in and around the SE Georgia low country.
Walter formed Swamp Cabbage in 2001 as a means of exploring his southern musical influences and sharing his interpretations of them. Walter's electric guitar style is a mélange of Scott Joplin's ragtime and Jerry Reed's bayou pickin. Jim's bass barks like a tuba through a fuzz box and Jagoda drums like he's leadin' a New Orleans funeral parade. Lyrically, Swamp Cabbage offers a comedic travelogue through Walter's North Florida upbringing. On the the chance you catch a live show they guarantee you'll experience honest musicality and good laughs.
The group has three CDs – the self released debut "Honk" in 2006, "Squeal" released in 2008 on the ZOHO Roots label, and the 2010 "LIVE FROM NEW YORK ON THE IN TUNE". In May 2012 they will be releasing a new CD, 'Drum Roll Please' Pre-Order here
