About this Event

Walter Parks (Voice/Guitars), Jagoda (drums) and Michael Bellar (Keyboard)

Northeast Florida is its own kind of weird. Go there with Swamp Cabbage and let your jaw drop, smile and dance. The band is an electric blend of southern rock, funk and second-line dixieland jazz grooves. Led by guitarist/singer Walter Parks, the longtime sideman to Woodstock legend Richie Havens, Swamp Cabbage transports audiences to the marshes, palmetto thickets, piney woods and trailer parks around which Parks grew up. Oft compared to The Meters, ZZ Top, Tom Waits and Dr John. Swamp Cabbage is especially adored in Europe but also tours the U.S. lower 48.

What to expect

Wait service. Small Plates, Beer, Wine & Specialty Cocktails available. Two drink minimum or equal value of food per person/show.

History of Cafe Bohemia:

Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lester Young, Charles Mingus, Roy Eldridge, Ben Webster, Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Kenny Dorham, Randy Weston all not only played here at the Cafe Bohemia but RECORDED legendary albums here. Cannonball Adderley was discovered here overnight. Monk hung out here. Oscar Pettiford led the house band. Charlie Parker invented the place. Before it was the Cafe Bohemia, it was the Pied Piper where Max Kaminsky and Frankie Newton led the house band at different times and James P. Johnson and Willie "The Lion" Smith had cutting contests. 15 Barrow Street was an epicenter.

With Jazz landmarks on the brink everywhere, the reopening of Cafe Bohemia is truly a triumph of Jazz preservation and continuity.
