Whiskey drinkin’, foot stompin’ and hand clappin’ Mississippi Blues duo, Swampcandy returns once again to Harmony Presents! This alligator wrestling aggressive blues duo won the 2014 Floyd Festival On The Rise competition coming in first place out of 35 bands that performed. Swampcandy doesn’t just play the blues, they transform the genre, taking one of American music’s oldest forms and rendering it brand new. Ruben Dobbs’ aggressive finger-picking and rhythmic style (which often adds up to sounding like more than one guitar) combined with Joey Mitchell’s bass playing, pounding kick drum and percussive bass throttling (representing the presence of a full drum kit) easily fill up the sonic space normally created by a trio or even a four-piece group. Dobbs’ soulful, passionate vocals are the glue that holds it all together and makes this band tick. This is a band that has vision and delivers both live, on recordings and on video. Swampcandy was founded by Dobbs in 2007 and functioned with various lineups until he teamed up with Joey Mitchell in 2010 and the permanent die was cast.
