Next Stage Arts Project presents an evening of zydeco music and cajun food featuring Planet Zydeco at the Next Stage Cafe on Saturday, May 25. Next Stage offers a gumbo dinner starting at 6:00 pm, and Planet Zydeco plays their high energy accordion/guitar driven dance music of Louisiana at 7:00 pm.
For the past fourteen years, Planet Zydeco has been bringing the dance hall music of Louisiana to clubs and festivals throughout New England and New York. They are pleased to welcome Cannon Labrie, who also plays with popular Cajun band Yankee Chank, on accordion and vocals. Other members are Peter Petengill and Nick Keil on guitars and vocals, Alan Bradbury on bass and vocals, Doug Plavin on drums and Suzanne Wozniak on rubboard. Zydeco music is characterized by nimble accordion playing backed by a driving rhythm section.
Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill in downtown Putney, VT. Admission is by a $10 suggested donation at the door. The Next Stage Cafe has a dance floor and a beer and wine cash bar. For information, call 802-387-0102. For more information, visit www.nextstagearts.org.
