New Orleans, Louisiana’s favorite sons, The Iguanas, bring the diverse sounds of their hometown’s fusion of blues, Latin, Zydeco, Cajun, Tex-Mex and Roots Rock to the Hook & Ladder.
“Like the Meters and the Neville Brothers, The Iguanas fuse those many styles into a rock and roll funk.”– The Houston Press

What if Americana actually encompassed ALL of North America? You’d have the Franco Acadian inflections of Canada, as best exemplified by the accordion, blues and jazz, the only truly indigenous music the US has ever produced, and the lilting grace and fiery passion of the music of Mexico. You’d also have New Orleans’ premiere distillers of this continental musical mélange: The Iguanas.
Based out of New Orleans for the past couple of decades save for a short, Katrina-imposed exile in Austin, the members of The Iguanas have (collectively or individually) played or recorded with everyone from Charlie Rich, Alex Chilton, and Willie DeVille to Emmylou Harris, Allen Toussaint, and Pretty Lights.
Through eight studio albums, countless tours and Jazz Fest appearances, their two-decade ride has taken them all over the map musically and geographically, yet the inescapable patina of their hometown infuses every note they play.
