Imagine yourself relaxing on a steamboat as it lazily floats down the Mississippi River all the way to The Big Easy. Suddenly, the band strikes up a tune, music fills the air and everyone is on their feet, clapping, dancing and singing along.

Welcome to the world of Roosevelt Dime, a five-piece, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based band that blends elements of acoustic jug-band blues, classic New Orleans soul and neo-folk to create an original sound best described as Kings County Steamboat Soul. The band’s nontraditional lineup — consisting of banjo, electric and washtub basses, percussion, trumpet and woodwinds — and seamless mixture of musical genres has been described as "a perpetual crowd-pleaser" by the New York Times. Now, the group is poised for a breakthrough with its new album Steamboat Soul.

So hop aboard the S.S. Rosie and get ready for the ride of a lifetime!

Thank you to all of our generous backers and benefactors through Kickstarter who made this music possible.
