About Soggy Po Boys: Born on a snowy Fat Tuesday night of 2012, the Soggy Po’ Boys have been honing their craft of New Orleans’ music in their Tuesday residency in their home town of Dover New Hampshire. The New Orleans flavored septet doesn’t just play their weekly gig and call it at that. No, they fit in more than a hundred shows every year, from festivals and concerts to politics-infused burlesque collaborations and street parades. Part of the beauty of New Orleans music is that it’s celebrated and appreciated wherever it goes, from the street to the theater. The Po’ Boys are doing their part to spread the greatest music on earth around their home in New England and when touring, throughout the rest of the country. The Soggy Po’ Boys serve their jazz messy, mixing brass-fueled mayhem with spirituals, Meters-style old-school funk, and the Caribbean side of the New Orleans tradition.
NHPR describes the band in this way: “If you’ve been to Sonny’s Tavern in Dover, New Hampshire on a Tuesday night, you could be forgiven for feeling like you’ve stepped into a New Orleans jazz club. The eight musicians that make up the Seacoast-based Soggy Po Brings the brassy music of Nawlins to Dover.” London Jazz News agrees, writing of the band’s third release in four years No Worse for Wear: “Although boasting a convivial spirit to rival that of a slick cocktail party favourites The Hot Sardines, The Soggy Po’ Boys like things a bit rougher around the edges. This sousaphone-powered octet from New Hampshire is a more microbrewery ale than a peach daiquiri. Think Hot 8 Brass Band, but with generally darker subject matter and fewer Marvin Gaye covers.”
The Soggy Po’ Boys are:
Eric Klaxton- Soprano Sax and Clarinet
Zach Lange- Trumpet
Nick Mainella- Tenor Saxophone
Mike Effenberger- Piano
Stu Dias- Guitar and Vocals
Brett Gallo- Drums
Scott Kiefner- Bass
But, wait…there’s more music! Come early for the PMAC Summer Jazz Workshop performance at 5:30pm.
