d on Demolition Day. Some are rooted in reality and personal experience. Head High Water Blues is a look back at the Hurricane Katrina experience now that ten years has passed. Much has been rebuilt, but much has not and never will be and the song is more about the emotional scars that can never be fully erased. Others are just fiction and storytelling. We had the music for Through Another Day, and it sounded sort of old and epic and Southern, and that inspired this Civil War-era storyline that became the lyrics. Others are just sort of playful nonsense about life and relationships, like Watch And Chain.Demolition Day is about rebuilding more than tearing down. Its about a renewal of purpose, reflected through powerful lyrics and stories, great slide guitar on top of deep bass and rhythms that continue to move the foundation that the band was built upon.New Orleans has a deep well of music, and that well has no rules the only boundaries are the ones that we place on ourselves.On Demolition Day, the Honey Island Swamp Band breaks these boundaries to deliver a sound so relevant and honest that even in the darkest of days like the violent storm that brought this group of musicians together Demolition Day still shines brightly.Meet The Honey Island Swamp Band:Aaron Wilkinson mandolin, guitar, harmonica, vocalsChris Mul guitar, vocalsSam Price bass, vocalsGarland Paul drums, vocalsTrevor Brooks keyboards
