Darcy Malone and the Tangle bring their infectious sound to Baton Rouge

Darcy Malone and the Tangle, a band that calls the Big Easy home, will be bringing its rhythmic, dynamic soul to Baton Rouge on Friday, April 21 at the Dyson House Listening Room.

Darcy Malone was born and raised in New Orleans in a very musical family. Her father is Dave Malone of the New Orleans Radiators and her mother is Suzy Malone of the Pfister Sisters. Being a part of such a classic New Orleans bloodline, Darcy has been in and around the music scene her entire life.

“I couldn’t get away from [the music]. I didn’t want to, but there was no escaping it,” she said. “It was gonna happen one way or the other. For as long as I can remember, I have loved to sing. I would play all of the different instruments in the house and if I heard a song on the radio, I would try to replicate it on the piano.”

Darcy Malone & the Tangle is no mangle-Lagniappe Weekly, Mobile, Al

Observers of the New Orleans music scene in recent years have noticed its sounds are changing. Bands such as Sweet Crude and Motel Radio have been showing the nation there’s more than just funk and jazz coming out of the Crescent City. Of all those new sounds, Darcy Malone & the Tangle’s music could be considered particularly unique. This extremely versatile band has twice treated the Azalea City to a visit. Their audience can expect each song to mingle sonic influences ranging from indie rock to Motown soul, enhanced by a charismatic live delivery.

The last time they played The Listening Room, vocalist Darcy Malone says, they were very pleased with both the full room and the positive reception, and are looking forward to giving their Mobile audience another night full of music, dancing and smiles.

INTERVIEW: Darcy Malone on her ‘Tangle’ of music inspiration

As the daughter of Dave Malone of The Radiators, Darcy Malone had a musical upbringing that brought her in contact with the best that New Orleans had to offer. She took that inspiration and ran with it, and now she’s the head of Darcy Malone & The Tangle, a jamming band that strives to present multiple musical traditions during a concert.

Among her tangled brethren is Christopher Boye, guitarist for the band and Malone’s husband. Other members include Craig Toomey, Jagon Eldridge, Billy Schell and JP Carmody. Audiences can catch them on a string of live gigs, including their opening set for Bonerama at Tipitina’s March 17 and at French Quarter Fest April 6. Later in the year, she’s heading to North Carolina, New Jersey (for Michael Arnone’s Crawfish Festival) and New York City.

Growing up a Malone Musician:

Darcy Malone sits at a kitchen table, trying to explain how performing in musical theater as a kid helped her beat stage fright, but she’s cut off by a Disney refrain from her uncle, Tommy, and father, Dave, singing in unison.

“Let it go! Let it go! Let it go!”

She gives up, shrugs her shoulders and rolls her eyes as they dissolve into a fit of giggles.

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.
