Live from Louisiana!
Wed, Dec.11 | Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble: Part 2
Zydeco & Tacos with Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble, as they swing thru Seattle one more time for a BONUS DANCE PARTY at Eagles Mother Aerie (8201 Lake City Way NE), 7-10pm, $20. Zydeco lesson, 6:15pm with the Gator Boy. The music will be jumpin' and the tacos bumpin' at the Eagles for a mid-week Louisiana Zydeco Party, last one of the year! Come early for a basket of tasty tacos, take a Zydeco lesson, then get up close and personal with Curley at 7pm as he tells a story or two in a stripped-down, intimate old-school set, then fires up the full band around 7:30pm. This supremely talented band brings the monster fun and endless grooves, and puts on a fantastic show every time out. From Curley's smooth-as-silk vocals to the joyfully danceable rhythms, it's fresh, it's righteous, and it's guaranteed you'll be on your feet and hollerin' for more! The very best of Louisiana coming to YOUR town, Seattle, get it while it's hot. RSVP the FB event and help spread the good word. It's a mid-week Taco Wednesday Zydeco Party!
