Montalvo Arts Center Presents Master Ensemble The Subdudes
Montalvo Arts Center presents The Subdudes, a band that quietly became one of America's national music treasures over the course of 25 years and 10 albums, as part of its Carriage House Concert Series. Mixing soulful R&B swagger with cheeky rock 'n' roll attitudes and warm folky harmonies, this New Orleans-based group showcases sharp musicianship and master ensemble-playing. More than just a concert, the "dudes" offer up a party, to which audiences happily feel invited. The Subdudes will perform 7:30pm, Saturday, November 9, 2019 in the Carriage House Theatre at the Montalvo Arts Center, 15400 Montalvo Rd., Saratoga. For tickets ($56 Reserved; $63 Premier) and more information, the public may visit montalvoarts.org or call 408-961-5858 (Monday through Friday, 10:00am-4:00pm).
The Subdudes includes singer/guitarist Tommy Malone, accordionist John Magnie, percussionist Steve Amendée, and bassist Tim Cook. Drawing most of their inspiration from the sounds of their native New Orleans, The Subdudes' music blends folk, swamp pop, New Orleans rhythm and blues, Louisiana blues, country, Cajun/zydeco, funk, soul, and gospel with harmonic vocals.
