Dennis Stroughmatt and Friends
Dear friends and music lovers,
I’ll be playing Cajun music & more with my musical compadre Dennis Stroughmatt, this Saturday Sept. 21. This will be an early show at the Iron Post, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. This will be a “full band” gig at the Iron Post, so come on out for two sets of Cajun, Creole, Zydeco, blues, trad country and more. I’ve played a good handful of gigs with Dennis in recent months, and all of them have been a lot of fun.
If you’ve never seen and heard Dennis before, then you’re in for a treat. Besides being a terrific fiddle player (and solid on accordion as well), Dennis has a really strong singing voice. His knowledge of music is deep, and he usually hits on a fair number of music genres during each show (Cajun, Creole, blues, etc.). Come out if you can and I hope to see some of you there.
