Well, looky there….the people have spoken! On January 23, HISB was honored with two awards at this year’s BEST OF THE BEAT Awards, hosted by OffBeat Magazine, the purveyors of all things Music in New Orleans and throughout the great state of Louisiana. The band was voted Best Emerging Artist for 2009, while Wishing Well was named 2009’s Best Blues Album. We want to thank all of our friends, family and fans who voted for us in these two categories. We’d also like to thank OffBeat for inviting the band to play a set at the House of Blues in the French Quarter, where the awards ceremony was held, joining the likes of Galactic, Anders Osborne, Bonerama, and Shamarr Allen on stage that night. Don’t worry, there will be no “resting on laurels”….while 2009 was a wonderful year for the band, 2010 is gonna be even bigger. Lookout!
