We have assembled a special combo of players & singers for this annual Mardi Gras Day celebration. Just so happens that Tommy Castro band is on a short break.. and Bowen Brown (TC, but they stole him from us!) is joining us RJ regulars, Kevin Zuffi, Ken Jacobs, Michael Peloquin & Mike Rinta, et moi .. and we are also bringing back the killer 3-girl vocal section from Big Bang Beat of Keta Bill, Kathy Kennedy and Katie Guthorn… plus special guest Candy Girard (violin, enabling our Cajun/Zydeco selections!)

BTW, if you get tickets ahead of time it will help the club know how much to staff the place!
