Swamp Cabbage


Listen to Butta

Swamp Cabbage is the stewed heart of a Florida Sabal palm tree. Chosen as a band name to remind listeners of it’s Northeast Florida well source of inspiration, Swamp Cabbage presents one of the most unique trios on the trail today. Walter Parks (longtime sideman to Woodstock legend Richie Havens) on gnarly fingerpicked electric guitar, New Orleans style drummer Jagoda and by Peter Sparacino unorthodoxly covers the bass role on baritone sax. Florida’s Swamp Cabbage is a high-energy southern soundtrack that’s soaked in the grease drippings of Mississippi blues, Memphis soul, Louisiana jazz and even Appalachia.

With 3 albums of original material under their belt, Honk (2006), Squeal (ZOHO Roots, 2008), Live From New York (2010), and Drum Roll Please (2012), a disc of re-envisioned, re-imagined and re-swamped 70s classics, presented in a way that only the raspy singin' combo of fatback blues and trailer park funk can dish out -- Swamp Cabbage newest CD, JIVE, is ready to release this year.

Their original music can be heard on the Discovery reality show American Guns credits, and on My Big Redneck Wedding, Man Vs. Food, Emeril Green, Extreme Pig Outs, Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Roadtrip Nation (PBS), Samantha Brown Passport, Amazing Wedding Cakes and Chasing Classic Cars.
