The name Gumbohead is the union of two concepts: Gumbo, a Creole stew made up of many diverse ingredients (like the band itself), and head which encapsulates diverse thoughts. The idea of Gumbohead is explained by “wrapping your mind around all things new and different.”

The members of the band refer to themselves as rhythmic rapscallions and tuneful tricknologists. Their greatest joy is playing music born in and influenced by New Orleans and southwest Louisiana, including zydeco, funk, jazz, R&B, brass band and traditional second line tunes. Gumbohead does more than justice to the works of Dr. John, Buckwheat Zydeco, the Meters, Chubby Carrier, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Neville Bros., the Radiators, Cowboy Mouth, the Iguanas, Galactic, Terrance Simien, Clifton Chenier, Earl King and the legendary Professor Longhair. Gumbohead’s take on the Louisiana sound is so authentic that they’ve opened for the Neville Bros., the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Terrance Simien, Chubby Carrier, Jon Cleary and Buckwheat Zydeco.
