The Honey Island Swamp Band to Perform at Pebble Hill on September 12

The Honey Island Swamp Band will perform a free, live music fundraiser for the Food Bank of East Alabama on Wednesday, September 12 at 6 p.m. at Pebble Hill in Auburn.

A nationally touring act, The Honey Island Swamp Band will bring their infectious blend of blues, roots, country, and soul to Auburn for their first local performance. The band was formed in San Francisco by a group of Louisiana "refugees" fleeing Hurricane Katrina. With an uncertain future, the founding members channeled their emotions to develop a signature style dubbed "Bayou Americana.” Often compared to Little Feat, The Band, and The Allman Brothers, their latest labor of love has culminated in the new album "DEMOLITION DAY". Produced by Luther Dickenson, of North Mississippi Allstars fame, and assisted by guest musicians Tab Benoit and Ivan Neville, among others, Demolition Day has garnered much critical acclaim. They are a perennial favorite, drawing a loyal following to their annual performance at the New Orleans Jazz Fest. 

In lieu of tickets, please bring a canned food item or monetary donation to contribute the Food Bank of East Alabama. Seating is limited and gates will open at 5 p.m.  Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.  Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street and is the home of the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities.  For more information, contact the Center at cah@auburn.edu or 334-844-4946.
