Low Down Riders

Feel the vibe of New Orleans street music

Born and bred in Sydney’s inner west, the Low Down Riders are a five piece band inspired by the musical gumbo that is New Orleans street music.


With a sound that wouldn’t be out of place in the bars of Frenchman street, horns that weave a raucous melody over the top of a rhythm section that chugs seamlessly like a steamboat down the Mississippi and lyrics that tell tales of happiness and heartbreak in the true storytelling tradition of the south.


The Low Down Riders are bringing the sounds of the Crescent City to the world. Put on your dancing shoes, grab a hurricane cocktail and don’t miss the Low Down Riders when they roll into a venue near you.
