FREE FAMILY CONCERT AND MOVIE

FOLLOWED BY A SHOWING OF DISNEY'S THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG AT DUSK 

Come for some fun and to celebrate the diversity of our country with authentic multicultural roots music for the entire family from two time GRAMMY award winning Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience.

For 38 years, two- time GRAMMY award winning artist Terrance Simien and 8th generation Louisiana Creole has been shattering the myths about what his indigenous Zydeco roots music is – and is not.

Leading his Zydeco Experience bandmates – long time members Danny Williams, keyboards and Stan Chambers, bass, horn players, Lance Ellis, sax and Curtis Watson, trumpet, and newest member (2019), drummer Ian Molinaro – Thompson – Simien has become one of the most respected and accomplished artists in American roots music today. He and his band mates have performed over 9000 concerts, toured millions of miles to over 45 countries during their eventful career
