Swampcandy is an aggressive Stomping Mississippi Blues and Roots influenced duo that preforms around 250 gigs a year. From venues, festivals and coffee houses around the U.S. and U.K. — including the #1 venue in the world under 500 seats, The Rams Head On Stage — Ruben Dobbs has teamed up with an incredible upright bass player / kick drummer, Joey Mitchell, to become a duo that has no lack of rhythm or stage presence! Swampcandy tours relentlessly. When not touring they are working on new material. Their music is raw and yet subtle. They have a sound that a band can only achieve after performing over 1000 gigs.
