The Subdudes are an American roots rock group from New Orleans. Their music is a blending of American folk, swamp pop, New Orleans
rhythm and blues, Louisiana blues, country, cajun, zydeco, funk, soul and gospel with harmonic vocals. Their sound is notable for the band's
substitution of a tambourine player for a drummer. The Subdudes formed in 1987 through a music venue in New Orleans called Tipitinas.
