NEW ORLEANS, LA Dem Boys, a coalition of New Orleans' musicians, celebrates the kickoff of the highly anticipated 2009 New Orleans Saints football season with the release of their debut EP fittingly titled "Roll with the Black and Gold."

"We hope this will be the most authentic and lively anthem ever blasted through the Superdome megaphones," said Matt Peoples, one of the band's vocalists.

You can purchase the tracks on iTunes or Amazon.com

Lyrics from the title track "Roll with the Black and Gold" best sum up the high expectations for the upcoming Saints football season: "Oh can't you see them in that black and gold, they're off to the playoffs and then to the Super Bowl…Everybody lets roll!"

The three-song release also includes the tracks "NOLA," a hearty groove that hums with the lesser known elements of life in the Big Easy, and "Feelin' Good in the City," which examines a chance meeting on the banks of the Mississippi River of a gospel quartet, a banjo, and a tuba player with an 808 kick drum.

Dem Boys and independent label Drake Records will contribute 20 percent of all music sales to the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, a non-profit foundation with a "mission to sustain Louisiana's musicians in body, mind and spirit by developing access to primary care, preventative health services, as well as social and occupational outreach."

Members of the all-local group are: drummer/producer Eric Heigle, vocalist Matt Zarba of The M@ Peoples Collective, vocalist Sherman "Strawdaddy" Johnson of Tipitinas Uptown, and pianist Andrew Meehan of Gravity A.

Also contributing to the project were Grammy-winning engineer Chris Finney, bassist Jon Solomon (also of Gravity A), vocalist Robin Kinchen of The Voodoo Revue, vocalist Sasha Masakowski of NovaNola, saxophonist James Martin of Happy Jack Frequency, tuba player John Gross of The Panorama Jazz Band, banjo player Chris Edmunds of The New Orleans Moonshiners, trumpet player Josh Leblanc of The Givers , and guitarist Korey Richey of Dockside Studios.

Dem Boys hope their debut release will showcase the City of New Orleans' unique culture that brings together musicians from all styles and walks of life through their shared love of music and all things NOLA.

Developing out of a city that is inundated with musical vibrations, Gravity A exhilarates New Orleans' rich musical tapestry with their fresh, dynamic energy and innovative sound. This five years old quartet is inspired by the soulful jazz expressions and second-line fusions of their hometown, yet still draws heavily upon the eclectic possibilities of electronic progressions. Gravity A has become the torchbearer for the city's late night soundtrack featuring the unmistakable sound of true New Orleans funk, tight drum n' bass breaks and intoxicating trance. The band's unique sound is highly dependent upon the musicians' passion for live instrumentation and improvisation, which often lends itself to a rambunctious adventure grooving through sunrise. As opposed to Newton's well-known gravity b, Gravity A has taken their name from the force responsible for the cohesion and semblance of all subatomic matter. At a Gravity A show in New Orleans or beyond, this force is intense and irrefutable. The dance floor is transformed into a frenzy as the polar vibrations of Gravity A's magnetic rhythms and far-reaching frequencies resonate amongst the bopping feet, shaking hips, and smiling faces.
