Nutalusa


Nutalusa (pronounced nut‑a‑loose‑ah) is a Baltimore / Washington DC band with an energizing and heart-warming mix of traditional and inventive Cajun and Zydeco-style dance music. We get your dance bones going with sweet melodies and raw beats for zydeco, two-step and waltz. The band is based in Columbia, Maryland, with members hailing from Maryland and Washington DC.

 

Seven members that play a variety of instruments, including Cajun accordion, triple row and piano accordions, fiddle, acoustic and electric guitar, drums, standup and electric base, harmonica, ukulele, triangle, and rubboard (frottoir). Our main influences are from the Louisiana countryside music scene but draw from other intoxicating and soul-capturing music. The band's name was inspired by the catchy Louisiana town name Bogalusa. With knowledge that we were embracing nuttiness, it all began to fit – Nutalusa, loose nut spelled backwards.
