After Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Big Easy, the citizens of New Orleans quickly began rebuilding their city. Many may view this period as one that focused solely on the city’s infrastructure. However, artists living in this iconic locale also focused on salvaging the culture. Flow Tribe was born in the post-Katrina environment.
The funk-rock septet developed a new-school, upbeat sound, matching it with a captivating stage show that leaves audiences grooving into the night. With a set full of original sounds, Flow Tribe embarked on a continual tour and helped spread the word that NOLA music was alive and well.
When Flow Tribe returns to the Oakleigh Garden District, the group will regale the Callaghan’s crowd with its latest single, “Walk Like an Animal,” produced by Tom Drummond of Better Than Ezra and featuring trombonist “Big” Sam Williams (of Big Sam’s Funky Nation). The band clearly has taken an “if it ain’t broke” approach to its latest track. “Walk Like an Animal” is a fun, horn-filled funk anthem that transports listeners to the Marigny on a busy Friday night.
