To celebrate Mardis Gras we are featuring cajun inspired food from the Munch Box all day and hosting live music from the Gumbo Jets in the evening. Bring your dancing shoes!
The Gumbo Jets is a traditional Cajun dance band that branches off into contemporary Cajun and Creole styles with a smattering of cajunized covers and originals. Tunes range from lively 2-steps to sweet waltzes with haunting French lyrics. Andrea Early Coen holds down the melody with smooth as silk fiddle and vocal harmonies supporting Michele Riggio on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. Dave Bokel sings, plays electric guitar and a bit of banjo and writes songs while Rich Longberg holds down the rhythm section with rockin’ bass runs. Together, they create a foot stomping groove that brings the bayou into the Heart of the Rockies. It’s sure to make you want to get up and dance. Laissez les bon temps roulez!
