In a scene dominated by jazz and funk, Dave Jordan & The NIA is yet another band proving the rich diversity of the New Orleans music scene. Jordan has created a Southern roots rock sound marinated in local swamp water.
From Le Bon Temps Roulé to Tipitina’s, Jordan and his group have established a dedicated following in the Crescent City and beyond. When they take the Flora-Bama’s “tent stage,” this band will keep the crowd rocking past midnight with songs from their latest album, “No Losers Tonight.”
“No Losers Tonight” begins with an onslaught of fast-paced guitar riffs mixed with intricate fill-ins and solos, courtesy of the track “Southern Girl.” With its mix of intense roots rock with country overtones, this song could define Jordan’s trademark sound. This album also shows a band that is not afraid to jam in the studio. Epic tracks such as “Pontchartrain” and “Boot to the Neck” cross the five-minute mark, while keeping the listener’s attention with memorable lyrics and beautiful instrumentation.
