  • Gumbo
  • Muffalettas

Dear friends and music lovers,
 
Yes, it is time for Mardi Gras as Fat Tuesday is next Tuesday, Feb. 25. 
 
Please come out to the Iron Post and let’s celebrate Mardi Gras with music by Dennis Stroughmatt & Friends. The band will include Dennis, Doug Hawf, Greg Bigler, Doug Rigsby and [Rob Krumm], so that’s basically an “old and new” Creole Stomp lineup. We’ll play a lot of Cajun & Creole music, and throw in some second line New Orleans party music as well. 
 
We’ll start at 8:00 PM and play 2 sets.  There will be a cover charge, likely $7. Find your beads from last year or go by Dallas & Co and get some new ones.
 
Thanks and I hope to see some of you there.  This should be a very fun evening

Mardi Gras Party with Dennis Stroughmatt & Friends @ RBTV Online
Feb 12 @ 8:00 pm

Greetings friends and music lovers,

Just in time for Mardi Gras, I’ll be playing music with Dennis Stroughmatt on Friday, Feb. 12. We’ll be streaming from the Rose Bowl in Urbana and the show will start at 8:00 PM CST.

Along with Greg Bigler (on bass), we’ll be taking a Mardi Gras Road Trip that will include French songs from Old Upper Louisiana (Missouri-Illinois-Indiana), and Cajun & Creole music from southwest Louisiana. We’ll also make a brief stop in New Orleans somewhere along the way.

The gig will be streamed on Facebook —
Mardi Gras Party with Dennis Stroughmatt & Friends

The Rose Bowl streams shows on RBTV (Rose Bowl TV). Besides Facebook, you can access RBTV on YouTube.

Hopefully, we can provide some musical warmth in the middle of the Arctic Blast.

Thanks and I hope that some of you can catch this livestream.
