Too Loose Cajun Zydeco Band

This band has two fiddles, accordion, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, the traditional Louisiana rub-board, and a kickin' rhythm section. With their vocal harmonies tart and sweet, male and female, they are perennial favorites on the zydeco stage at the Waterfront Blues Festival, as well as at area parties, weddings and festivals. So come on down, and bring your dancin' shoes.

Bring a blanket or chair and a picnic dinner. 6:30pm
