Mobile is a town full of seasoned partiers, and many will be looking for the perfect warm-up to their New Year’s Eve shenanigans. The Listening Room is solving that problem by bringing a taste of Big Easy roots rock to the Azalea City.

Whether in a small venue or at a large festival, Dave Jordan & the NIA deliver a solid live performance that showcases the talents of all members, veterans of the New Orleans scene. Their brand of thick Southern-fried rock tossed with swamp water has steadily built this band’s listening audience along the Gulf Coast and beyond.

Dave Jordan & the NIA have been touring relentlessly in support of their latest album, “No Losers Tonight.” This album has helped the group earn a nomination for “Best Roots Rock Artist” in Offbeat Magazine’s “Best of the Beat Music Awards.” “No Losers Tonight” is a great collection of modern roots rock. Dave Jordan & the NIA’s jam-filled mix of hard-driving rock numbers and refreshing ballads will get The Listening Room’s crowd in the mood to celebrate the New Year.
