The Iguanas On Mountain Stage
The Iguanas On Mountain Stage The Iguanas perform live at Mountain Stage.
Combining jazz, zydeco, blues and Tex-Mex music with R&B and roots rock, The Iguanas have spent nearly 30 years cultivating a loyal live following. The band's latest release, Sin to Sin, is its first album since 2008. Roots-rock band The Iguanas make their third appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live on the campus of West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va. Combining jazz, zydeco, blues and Tex-Mex music with R&B and roots rock, The Iguanas have spent nearly 25 years cultivating a loyal live following.

The Iguanas began in 1989 when San Francisco guitarist Rod Hodges fused his newfound interest in the conjunto music of his mother's Mexican heritage with bassist Ren? Coman's Crescent City sensibilities. Now based out of New Orleans, the band also features Joe Cabral on saxophone and keyboards and Doug Garrison on percussion.

The Iguanas issued their first full-length LP on Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville label in 1993, and their latest, Sin to Sin, is their first album since 2008. The band's set includes the breezy "Pelican Bay," which was not heard in the radio broadcast.

The Iguanas are followed by Mountain Stage pianist Bob Thompson, with his take on the jazz standard "Makin' Whoopee!"
