The Swamp Band

The Swamp Band


The Swamp Band is comprised of five hardworking guys. Best described as country roots, our original music is unique with seemingly familiar flavours. Known also for performing rock-a-billy, blues, bluegrass and 50's&60's pop music. The band has been entertaining audiences for three decades.


The Swamp Band has gone through a number of incarnations over the past 30 years. But now, many of its longest serving members have returned, and the band known for playing “music from the fringe” is back in the recording studio and back on the stage.
It all re-materialized after an impromptu jam session early in 2005. It was like we had never stopped playing together. Everyone is excited about getting back at it and heading into the studio.

Even more exciting was to showcase the music from our newest c.d. to 80,000 plus fans at the Havelock Jamboree.
We are pleased to announce that The Swamp Band is back, like never before!
