Cottondale Swamp is a Florida Swamp Rock, Southern Americana, Outlaw Country Band from the swamps of Florida. Weeki Wachee, FL is our ground zero. Mermaid Shows and the Gulf of Mexico, it doesn't get anymore "Old Florida" than that. Original Florida swamp rock with authentic country sensibilities and a heart of rock 'n roll.  

Cottondale Swamp celebrates the back roads, small towns and the seedy underbelly of Florida. We write songs that celebrate the people, places and uniqueness of our southern most state.  

Cottondale Swamp is fronted by Kenny Grube who has been an Elvis Tribute artist for the last 10 years. Kenny is the real deal! His voice has an authentic southern drawl that expresses the years he has endured paying his dues on the B, C, and D circuits of the southern United States. He is backed by an equally experienced band of road warriors. All of whom have been plying their trade in the trenches and (at times) the pinnacles that come your way when you're a musician relentless in pursuing the dream.

Cottondale Swamp is back in the recording studio. 

After a fantastic festival show last weekend in Brooksville, FL, the band is back in the studio earnestly trying to finish the debut record. The band received such positive feedback at last week's concert, it was humbling and highly motivating! We need to finish this record! Look for more concert dates in the coming months. Get ready kids, Cottondale Swamp is making a nitro-burning album that will change the meaning of term Swamp Rock! It's gonna knock your socks off!!

Saturday, 4/16/2016 - Cottondale Swamp recording at "Studio B" in Saint Petersburg, FL 

Saturday started off by Michael and Chaz attending the grand opening of "Guitars on Central". This a cool boutique music store owned by our dear friends Rick Benegbi and Stevie B. Great shop in a great location! We drank PBRs and listened to some great garage band rock by Stevie B's band "Spectraflame". After getting in the proper frame of mind Michael and Chaz headed over to Studio B  to mix the song "Land Rich, Money Poor" and lay down some lead guitar parts. The new record is coming along nicely. A mix of "Land Rich, Money Poor" is being added to our webpage, so take a listen and let us know what you think!
