Come to Concordia Ballroom in La Crosse for an opportunity to dance to a two-time winner of the Cajun French Music Association (CFMA) “Prix Dehors” award!

The high-spirited Cajun dance music of the New Riverside Ramblers comes from the rich musical heritage of the bayous and prairies of south Louisiana. The band covers a spectrum from old-style fiddle tunes, lively two-steps, soulful waltzes, gritty blues to rockin’ honky-tonk sounds – all the sounds from the dance halls and back porches of rural Louisiana.

The Cajun French vocals are at times plaintive, raucous, happy, or sad, but always expressive. Inspired by legendary Cajun musicians, the Ramblers overlay their own infectious feel that gets toes tapping. Their music can be as soulful as a sultry evening on the bayou or spicy enough to grab your boogie shoes – dancers and audiences always “pass a good time.”

Karen Holden will be leading a Cajun dance lesson starting at 6:30. Come out and join the fun!
