“This is truly a new level of “swamp funk” that is going to start rising from the mists of the bayous and taking the country by insidious invasion” – Bob Gottlieb, AllMusic.com
Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band have recorded ten CDs over the past 22 years of Chubby’s professional career. His band has traveled all over the world, performing to audiences in all parts of the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, Canada. North Africa and Europe. Chubby and the band travel 150-175 days a year, taking his act to big festivals such as the New Orleans Jazz Fest, the Chicago Blues Fest. In “Too Hot To Handle”, Chubby and the Bayou Swamp Band kick things off with the fast-paced name track, evolving into a journey of funky authenticity that travels through epic tracks like “Cisco Kid” and “Fire on the Mountain”. The album’s conclusion, the 10-minute “Rock Me Baby” is full of Zydeco flavor and cajun beats that will make the listener reminisce of a warm Sunday afternoon by the Louisiana swamps.
