Based out of New Orleans for the past couple of decades, the Iguanas define a sound of Americana that crosses cultures, styles, eras… and even languages. Combine the Franco Acadian inflections of Canada (as best exemplified by the accordion), Blues and Jazz, (the only truly indigenous music the US has ever produced), and the lilting grace and fiery passion of the music of Mexico, and you’d have New Orleans' premiere distillers of this continental musical melange, The Iguanas. Collectively or individually, the members of the Iguanas have played or recorded with everyone from Charlie Rich, Alex Chilton, and Willy DeVille to Emmylou Harris, Allen Toussaint and Pretty Lights.

Their two decade ride has taken them all over the map musically and geographically, yet the inescapable patina of their hometown infuses every note they play. Through eight studio albums, countless tours and Jazz Fest appearances, and a flood that did its best to take their adopted city with it, it's a testament to the band's endurance that the same four guys that started playing in the early 1990s are still together. Joe Cabral is philosophical about the band's persistence in the face of challenges that would have felled indeed have felled lesser bands. “First of all, this is all we know how to do; we're musicians. But more than that,” he continues, “we respect the power of the band as an entity, and each individual in the band steps up to play his part. When it's good, that's really what it's all about.”

Rod Hodges agrees. “I don't want to get all heady and mystical about this, but it's not really an outward reward we're looking for. We all enjoy playing music, we all get along, and finding a group of people who can say that after all this time is a rare thing.”
