Sneak a little foolishness in before the festival officially begins, with a pre-party at Nectar’s, featuring Jimbo Mathus and Dial Back Sound. Jimbo Mathus has blazed a singular path as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer and shaman for 40 years. Founder of New Orleans swing band Squirrel Nut Zippers, he has recorded and released more than 300 songs. A body of work that is a testament to his hoodoo craftsmanship and to the sounds, sights and spirits of his inspirations in the Deep South. His latest album, Incinerator, is an incendiary reflection of his world in music. With his current band, he brings together the house musicians from Dial Back Sound studio in Water Valley, Mississippi, who have collectively played on hundreds of Deep South R&B, blues, rock and Americana albums. Together they form an impressive rhythm section capable of spanning material from Mathus’ entire 20-album solo catalogue.
