Mardi Gras Throwdown with Bayou X & Zydeco Connection

  • Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center 289 Main Street Greenfield, MA 01301 (map)

For the second year running, Bayou X and Zydeco Connection will pair up for an exuberant Mardi Gras party on Saturday, March 2, at the always terrific Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, right in the center of Greenfield MA. Cyndy Rose & Zydeco Connection are the local favorites in Greenfield. Bayou X, we’re the new band on the block for this crowd. But that suits us just fine. 2018 was a terrific party, and I’m sure 2019 will be too! Hawks & Reed is one of our favorite venues in Northern New England. Centrally located, it’s a first class facility with easy access to the I-91 corridor, which is to say, easy access for Zydeco dancers all over New England. We’ll be trading off sets here a couple times over the course of the evening, two sets per band, which keeps everything moving. This year, it will be Zydeco Connection for Sets 1 & 3, and Bayou X for Sets 2 & 4. Hawks & Reed will be serving good and affordable food in addition to their always A-1 bar service. Weather cooperating, I look for this party to be even better than the one we had last year, which is saying a lot! This is the Saturday before Fat Tuesday, what I call the High Mardi Gras Season. This party will definitely rock your socks off! You’ll want to be there, or be square! Tix will be $14 in advance, $18 at the door.
