I*ko Ya Ya dishes out steaming New Orleans-drenched “swamp and roll” for your dancing pleasure!
The band is made up of longtime members of some of our favorite local groups, and it’ll be a night of big time “bon temps roulez”!
The party started in 2013 when the original lineup got together to play the Louisiana-influenced music that moves them. Tonight it’s a full plate of their favorite New Orleans-based dance music – blues and boogie, Cajun/zydeco, R&B, Second Line, and even a little country – all delivered with a Mardi Gras vibe.
Among the dance favorites are “We Make a Good Gumbo,” “It’s All Over Now,” “Hey Pocky Way,” and “Waltz Across Texas.”
