BRING THE FUNK
CJ Chenier was born into the musical traditions of southwest Louisiana and Texas, his father was the legendary Zydeco king Clifton Chenier, a Grammy Award winning artist in his own right. The music he creates with the Red Hot Louisiana Band is some of the most purely infectious Zydeco and swamp funk being played today. Your pulse will get racing, your feet will get moving and you WILL be wrapped up in magic that is a Nawlinz wake.
Gates open at 5:00pm, music starts at 5:15pm with a beer, wine and soft-drink service from City Winery and food prepared by Great Performances. We are also welcoming our friends from QOOL, Quality Of Our Lives,who will be showcasing hand rolled Costa Rica Cigars.
