“Dixie New Orleans Chaos with the Soggy Po Boys where New Orleans Jazz is served messy.

Show: Palace Productions presents: Soggy Po Boys Band
Date: May 22nd,
Time: 8pm
Ticket price: No Cover
Venue: Haydee’s – Mt. Pleasant.
3102 Mt. Pleasant St., NW

The Soggy Po Boys were born at the old location of the Barley Pub in Dover, NH on Fat Tuesday of 2012. The group was formed as a smaller Hammond organ group with two horns and had planned to play roots New Orleans funk and brass band music but misunderstood the gig’s timeline and ended up a set short on material.

For the unexpected last set they gathered around the piano and played acoustically, focusing on New Orleans early jazz standards and spirituals. They haven’t looked back, performing in this way weekly and all over the Seacoast with a full horn section and a sousaphone.

Check them out at http://soggypoboys.com/ , which has their new CD “Seedy Business” for sale as well as other information.”

@CraigPlazure tweeted us the sad update last night:


Back in March we first learned Adam Express intended to close but those plans fell through when a buyer backed out. For whatever the reason the closure seems permanent now so let’s wish the Baes a peaceful and happy retirement:
