Join us for a night of dancing and merriment to celebrate Mardi Gras, featuring Bayou Faux Pas – a high-energy Cajun dance party band from Charlottesville, VA. We’ll start with a two-step dance lesson at the 6:30, followed by a dance and party from 7 – 10 pm. You don’t have to come to the lesson – you can just dance how you want!
Bayou Faux Pas: The first flicker of Bayou Faux Pas was at an late ‘80s festival when Rick and Paul discovered some folks having tons of fun playing Cajun music. They became obsessed. But they both played fiddle. They knew one of them was going to have to learn the accordion, and Paul drew the short straw. Since then, Bayou Faux Pas has kept audiences’ two-stepping, waltzing, and groovin’ for 25 years – and the latest lineup of seasoned musicians (Paul Rose, Zack Miller, Rich Friend, Pete Marshall, Susanna Rosen and Will Morrison) has the dance floor pumping!
