The ever-popular Too Loose Cajun/Zydeco Band rocks the house in the Portland area with their infectious brand of Cajun and zydeco dance music from Southwestern Louisiana. 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
