Mardi Gras Dance Party: ANDRE THIERRY & his Zydeco band
The Osher Marin JCC presents a Mardi Gras Dance Party with Zydeco music from Grammy Nominee Andre Thierry.
ANDRE THIERRY & his Zydeco band, Cajun flavors, pre-event dance lesson & fun set the tone for a Mardi Gras dance party in San Rafael.
The Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC presents the final concert of the 2nd Annual Winter Nights Dance Party Series. Tonight celebrates the music and culture of southwestern Louisiana, as Zydeco music returns to the JCC. This accordion driven sound was originally created at house dance parties where families and friends gathered for socializing. Emerging from the French Creole culture, Zydeco integrates Afro-Caribbean, waltz, shuffles, blues, rock & roll and other forms of great danceable music. Andre Thierry takes Zydeco to the next generation spicing things up with dash of hip hop and jazz added to the gumbo.
Come dance and enjoy the great energy that this music creates.
Pre-concert Cajun two-step dance lesson & cultural flavored dinners available for purchase.
