Hailing from the city of New Orleans, Strange Roux is a high energy Rock N’
Roll band with influences both old and new. Rooted in the sounds of the Louisiana
swamp, the group brings a thick, heavy vibe steeped in sweet melody and hard
hittin’ rhythm. As their debut EP Boogieman was welcomed by local publications
with rave reviews in Offbeat Magazine, Where Ya’t Magazine, and Antigravity the
roux krewe quickly took off on the local scene.
The members – Kennedy Kuntz (vocals), Jason Kareores (guitar/slide), Cody Lee (guitar), Matt Schmitt (bass), and Ana De Ferreira – have grown tight over years as a unit melding histories
of love, heartbreak, and Louisiana livin’ into an authentic recipe all their own.
Today, Strange Roux is working hard on new recordings, videos, and more for their
growing fan base all to be released in 2022.
The band has had successful showings at New Orleans venues such as
Tipitina’s, Howlin’ Wolf, Blue Nile, d.b.a, One Eyed Jacks, and has also had success at various festivals and venues across
the southeast region. The group has shared the stage with Dax Riggs, Luke Winslow King, Papa Mali, Johnny Sketch and The Dirty Notes, The Crooked Vines, Roadside Glorious, and many other local and national acts.
