The Iguanas is a roots rock band from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, formed in 1989. Their sound has been described as combining Chicano rock, R&B, Conjunto and various Latin styles into a deep groove. The song “Boom, Boom, Boom”, from their now out of print 1994 album Nuevo Boogaloo, was featured in the Homicide: Life on the Street episode “The Documentary”. Nuevo Boogaloo hit #34 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart in 1994. The group also appeared in Robert Mugge’s documentary, “New Orleans: Music in Exile”, in which they talked about how Hurricane Katrina affected them. The band released a new studio album titled Sin To Sin on PFAM in April, 2012 and their latest album was released in 2014 titled Juarez.
