After what seems like an eternity, we are ever so close to releasing our first new album in over 2 years! We want to make a BIG splash this time – and we need your help!

That’s why we’re teaming up with Pledge Music. Making records is fun, but it’s the live shows with our friends and fans – from Chicago to South Florida, from Baltimore to San Francisco – that we really dig. By supporting us through this campaign you will help us rebuild a bus engine, so we can bring the music to you, or to that new city or festival y’all keep telling us about. You’ll help us pay for record promotion and produce designs for new merchandise. You’ll keep our wheels turning on the road. In exchange for your generosity, we’ll step up our game and offer up some cool exclusives that we hope you value as fans of the Honey Island Swamp Band. It certainly does take a village.

Please check out the exclusives on the right side of the page. All pledgers will also gain access to a “Pledgers only” portion of the site, where you’ll find a steady supply of updates from the road – videos, live recordings, pics and VIP opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. And once we reach our goal, ten percent of funds raised will go to benefit the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic. Not only will you be helping us, you’ll be keeping the music alive down here in NOLA!

Most importantly, every time you listen to a song from this record, you’ll know you made it possible. You are the Honey Island Swamp Band family, and we can’t thank you enough. Come ride along with us!

Note that pledgers will get a download of the album on April 26th as a pledger-only update but the campaign will still go beyond that date

10% post goal
10% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to New Orleans Musicians' Clinic.
