Dana Abbott

 New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

A New Orleans sound that'll make you sway your hips and sip your whiskey


What started as musicians intermingling as sidemen for many late night gigs, blossomed one of New Orleans hottest emerging bands. The band has accumulated a large reputation and even larger fan base through extensive gigging and touring. Averaging 6 shows a week and producing fresh, soulful music from the past present and original.
The Dana Abbott band’s all-star lineup features New Orleans finest musicians and funkiest characters all of whom have deep roots in New Orleans music. Influenced by Motown blues and rock, the Dana Abbott band seamlessly combines the styles with the right amount of raw edge and space. The band continually stretches the bounds of New Orleans music turning ears and shaking hips wherever they perform.
Genuine by all accounts, the Dana Abbott Band is so full of talent and vibe where does one start? Dana's first album
( Half Way Home ) was released in 2007 and has been
touching people musically since it came out around the world.


"Halfway Home" EP produced by Malcolm Burn
