Five years and 4 records later, SwampDawWamp is ready to get those fires burning again with Short

Things.” The SwampDaWamp train just keeps rolling down the tracks with straight up southern flavored
rock and plenty of blues licks in the mix to keep fans with many tastes interested. The band mixes an

Rock Legends Cruise II, alongside Foreigner, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet, The Marshall Tucker Band,
