Mardi Gras w/ Dennis Stroughmatt & Friends @ The Iron Post
Feb 25 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Mardi Gras at The Iron Post !!!

Dennis Stroughmatt and Friends

  • Jambalaya
  • Red Beans and Rice
  • Gumbo
  • Muffalettas
  • Abita Beer
  • Hurricanes

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
