Take a Louisiana swamp and zydeco-punk guitarist, a New Orleans based Swiss songwriter , one of New Orleans finest athmospheric guitar players, a European jazz rhythm section, an award winning Australian folksinger, and a renowned Scottish acoustic instrumentalist, put them together to create music in the Louisiana bayou and you have B-Goes. Produced by Dave McNair (Silos, Sonny Landreth), B-Goes latest release Dante Street pushes the boundaries of American roots music. Comparisons can be made to Los Lobos, Dire Straits and Cowboy Junkies. A New Orleans reviewer remarked that "Dante Street is the record that folk rock legend Robbie Robertson tried to make with Storyville". Using storytelling, Daniel Lanois-style ambiance, multiple layers of vocals, strong electic guitars, varied acoustic instruments and percussion, Andi Hoffmann is able to evoke the mystery and soul of New Orleans with his songs. Hoffmann's international cast of characters lends a perspective to the music that makes it decidedly new American music!
