Thank you Big Easy Music Awards! We are thrilled to be nominated for Best Roots Rock artist by the folks at Gambit Magazine and BestofNewOrleans.com, who each year put on the most prestigious arts & entertainment honors in New Orleans. This is the 4th year in a row that HISB has been nominated as Best Roots Rock, and we have been fortunate enough to actually WIN this award the last two years, in 2011 & 2012. This year we are included along with such outstanding musicians as Alex McMurray and Creole String Beans in the category of Best Roots Rock, so we would certainly be humbled to win again while in such fine company!
Also, extra special congratulations to our bass player and world-class high jumper Sam Price and his band OTRA for their nomination as Best Latin Band. Yeah you rite!
