ABOUT ABOUT

 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."
