From CultureMaven.com:

So I slipped over to the Lagniappe Stage in the Fairgrounds’ Paddock area, where the groups are always lesser known and quirkier.

To check out big voiced Darcy Malone & the Tangle.

This was girl group, Top 40 meets Ornette Coleman, New Orleans nouveau Power Pop. (To make up a genre and try to describe the smile inducing music.)

The guitar player plays actual fills and solos, instead of simple strums as in most pop music these days.

And the very hot sax and keyboard player, a kid named Jagon Eldrich, which I know because his mom was sitting in front of me, and I retrieved her phone when it fell out of her pocket.

As proud mom kvelled, son just got his Masters in Music at LSU.

And he was stylin’ in pink and black, with long hair, looking like he might have played in some 70s group, like, say, War.

Meant To Be

I’m a kid from New Orleans. We generally play in bands and a lot of us play wind or brass instruments. As I’ve matured as a musician and as my love of the place I came from deepened, playing the saxophone just kind of made sense. I don’t think I necessarily chose the saxophone. Playing it was just the way it should have been. – Jagon

Mutual Admiration

Chris’ style differs from mine, but there is something where we’ve found a way to compliment each other without stepping on each other. I think it is about mutual admiration. Chris is a really talented songwriter and musician. He brings some great ideas to the band. – Glenn

Changing As A Singer

“How have you changed as a singer over the years?”

Darcy: I think I have gotten a little grittier, a little dirtier in my singing, channeling my inner Janis or Tina.

“Darcy Malone and the Tangle are a band straight out of New Orleans. And if you’re a fan of that original New Orleans sound, like me, then this is the band for you. They’re great!”

This Is A Band

I wouldn’t be here without the guys that I play with. That’s a huge deal to me. – Darcy

Song Development

Before going into the studio, we really worked on the arrangements and tightening up the songs. That was when I got to explore my own style a little bit more and made a bigger contribution during that process. – Glenn

It’s all about the groove

I’ve grown a lot as a drummer in the last four years with this band. I’m listening a whole lot more. It’s more about the song as opposed to what kind of fancy drum lick I can come up with. Staying in the groove. Staying in the pocket. – Billy

All Part of the Tangle

This band is based on friendship. It’s based on love. We do this as a unit. Even though the name of this band is Darcy Malone and The Tangle, we are all part of The Tangle. – Darcy

SONNY SCHNEIDAU

Darcy Malone and the Tangle have been bringing their brand of high-energy soul infused rock-n-roll to the House of Blues – New Orleans with great success. Darcy’s powerhouse voice, the band’s unique combination of multiple musical genres, and their catchy melodic hooks combine beautifully to create memorable and infectious songs. This band is definitely well on its way to bigger stages!
