Billy Iuso & the Restless Natives
Alpenglow

Add to your calendar
Date: August 1, 5:30 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Outdoor Stage
Details: A New York native who formed the funky, psychedelic guitar-fronted Brides of Jesus in the early 1990s, guitarist Billy Iuso developed a strong following on the Wetlands scene alongside Warren Haynes, Blues Traveler, and the Spin Doctors. As the Brides’ popularity continued to soar, they shared bills with Widespread Panic and the Dave Matthews Band. While touring and collaborating with members of the jam band community, Billy explored the roots of the bands that influenced him most, including the Funky Meters for whom he opened shows across the country. It wasn’t long before George Porter and Art Neville encouraged him to relocate to New Orleans permanently, which he did in 1996. He established himself on the live music scenes, forming the Restless Natives in 2002 and performed regularly with the Wild Magnolias, Anders Osborne, and as an original member of Dead Feat alongside Grateful Dead alum Bill Kreutzmann and Little Feat’s Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett. Today, the Restless Natives remain a local music scene staple, along with Billy’s acoustic performances he also frequently can be found on the guitar with old friends like Porter and Neville amongst many others.

Billy’s earthy vocal tone and the disarmingly raw sentiments embedded in his lyrics lend a richer dynamic to the muscular fretwork that’s always powered his performance. Combined with shifting blues-rock textures, echoes of psychedelia, and soulful New Orleans funk rhythms, the results paved the way for a reinvigorated, more song-centric direction in Billy’s artistic output. This one might blow the canopy off the stage.

Alpenglow concerts are held rain or shine. They are free and open to the public.
