The first question people often ask after hearing New Pony for the first time is 'when did these guys leave New Orleans and move to the northeast?' The answer is they didn't. New Pony was formed in Philadelphia, PA. in the Fall of 2006. But if you like your music filled with funk, spiced up with Cajun soul and some Delta grit, then New Pony is your kinda' band. Honestly, if you didn't know any differently, you'd swear these guys grew up on Crawfish Pie and Andouille while playing in the greasy dive bars of the crescent city. Their first CD, 'More Fire,' offers up a scorching mix of original New Orleans funk and delta style blues that reflects the influences of New Orleans greats like Professor Longhair, John Mooney, James Booker, The Neville Brothers, and Dr. John. The funky rhythm section of Max Guerin (bass) and Dwayne Holloway (drums) creates a pocket so deep you could sit in there for days; add to that the interplay of the keyboards and Chris Devenney's slide guitar and vocals on top, and New Pony's debut CD will reveal what audiences throughout Philadelphia have already learned, which is that this band smokes.
