MardiGras Dance Party with BAYOU DIESEL Fri Jan 30th 2015 8:00pm

Tickets: $10

Fun lovin' accordion powered mardi-gras party band from the WNC area!!

Bayou  Diesel  has  been  traveling the  obscure  gig-highways  and mountain  bayous  of  Western North  Carolina  since  2005 playing festivals, dance halls and  craft-breweries. 

This high energy rhythm-machine focuses  on  performing  the powerful  cajun,  zydeco  and mardi Gras  music  styles    of  Creole Southwest  Louisiana  combined with  vintage  rock  and  roll  hits plus  a  slew  of  contemporary  two-stepping originals. 

Featuring veteran Asheville-area musicians Steve Burnside    (accordions/fiddle),    Miriam    Allen   (rubboard/fiddle), Professor  Tall  Paul  (bass), Ben  Bjorlie  (drums)  and  David  Zoll (guitars), Bayou  Diesel  keeps  the  motor  humming  fueling  perky dance  beats,  inspired  jamming  and ‘franglish’  lyrics.  Critics  call their music ‘fun’, ‘dynamic” and  ‘tasty chank-a-chank’.

 This is their first  stop  at  the  Whitehorse  in  over  a  year.  With  a  third  CD  in progress,  the  group  is delighted  to  return  to  Black  Mt,  North Carolina’s  premier  music  showcase  for  a  Mardi-Gras Dance  mid-winter warm-up.
