The Iceman Special
New Orleans, LA
Two jamming brothers, a guitarist with 50 years of wisdom, a cinematographer raised on the drums, add in a touch of bongos: this is the recipe for the perfect blend of midnight swamp funk. The Iceman Special was formed in New Orleans during the summer of ’15 by Hunter Romero (Drums) and the Murry brothers, Will (Front Man) and Charlie (Bass). Before the quintet was solidified, the group began playing shows around Louisiana, eventually adding Steve Staples (Lead Guitar) and Bongo Mike to the line up, thus the Iceman was born. All five band members bring southern Louisiana to every stage; while balancing a commitment to the creation of unique music and to the audience’s enjoyment. With these components in place, every minute of their set produces an electrifying euphoria so powerful that even sheepish crowds are howling like wolves by the end of the first jam. The Iceman Special is all about the “right now”; living in the moment because life moves too fast to play slow.
