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 —

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.
