It's very hard for us to have to report the untimely death of the Swamp Daddy drummer, Richard Gibson on March 18. He was well respected as an over all musician in and around the Chico community. What Richard brought to the Swamp Daddy band can and will never be replaced. Rest in peace, Richard.
Nothing compares with the color, the attitude and the pure joy of New Orleans music. Swamp Daddy is Northern California’s own New Orleans Rhythm and Blues band. This is not your typical Blues. New Orleans R&B is traditional blues embellished by melodic Dixieland Jazz, lusty Caribbean rhythms and rug cutting Boogie-woogie. It is the Original Party Music born out of the city that hosts the biggest party in the U.S…Mardi Gras. This music is get up and dance, uplifting party music for adults. To accompany this exciting music, Swamp Daddy has an energetic and engaging stage presence which captures the spirit of Bourbon Street and delivers it in authentic style to your venue or occasion.
