Special to the DailyAfter an eight-year hiatus, the New Orleans and Rocky Mountain blend of harmony, groove and roots called the subdudes has returned with a new release, Miracle Mule.

BRECKENRIDGE The pioneers of roots rock have returned after an eight-year hiatus of recording. Sunday, they share their New Orleans and Rocky Mountain brand of groove in Breckenridge.

The subdudes got together for what they assumed would be a one-night stand at a New Orleans club in 1987. That night they birthed a new sound which would create a partnership for nearly a decade.

“The concept was to bring only what we could carry, so we just kind of showed up with a couple of acoustic guitars and Steve’s little tambourine thing,” said vocalist and guitarist Tommy Malone. “We all had a secret desire to do something a little more rootsy, focusing on the songs and the singing. It was a little more subdued – that word came out, and it was like, ‘Yeah, that’s it.'”In addition to Malone’s slide and John Magnie’s husky voice and accordion, Steve Amedée’s “little tambourine thing” provided the subdudes’ signature sound.
