What we're about

Mission Statement: Party!!! What we do: Go to night club shows, hand picked by me, to see, hear, and dance to great bands. What to expect: Lots of funky New Orleans style Brass Bands, Zydeco/Cajun bands and other New Orleans and LA related music. Many of the bands come from there, but many are local like New Sounds Brass Band, Swift Technique, and Philly Gumbo. Most of the Zydeco is presented by Allons Danser. Many bands come from NYC, Atlanta and elsewhere. There may even be a gospel show if I can find one.

Tired of that awful pop music and all that smooth whatever music being shoved down your throat? Come give us a try. "It's all about jazz, funk, rhythm and blues, and soul" - Jon Cleary

I do want to meet you, but we don't wear name tags. This is not a dating group. We don't stand or sit at a table as a group. These are mostly night clubs. These shows are very dynamic with people traveling from a table to the bar to the dance floor or to talk to somebody. If you happen to make a friend or two, cool. They don't have to be from the group. These shows are one big party. Groove to the music, dance, eat, drink and talk to people. The best way to make a friend. You might be new to the music I like, but trust me, it's good stuff.

A few people may want to get together for a bite to eat before a show. That's cool. Let me know. I might join you.

CJ Chenier & the Red Hot Louisiana Band

118 North

Zydeco at it's finest. Red Hot is an excellent description. 118 North says "fully seated show". That's absurd! It's Zydeco!! We'll just have to move those tables 😆 Doors: 7:00PM | Show: 8:00PM. Like always, I suggest that you get tickets ahead of time. A little pricey, $45.57 but CJ is worth it.
