Cajun Roots

August 18, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Laissez les bon temp roulez! – Let the good times roll! as we celebrate a delightful blend of our history of Cajun roots’ sounds and flavors on the Boardwalk – We really kick things into high gear with the official 5pm work whistle with Wayne Long announcing to those far and near that the weekend is here!

Enjoy live entertainment, featuring:

Union Duke – Union Duke is a Toronto folk quintet with an explosive live show. Bridging soulful indie rock with bluegrass and country, the group belts out soaring harmonies with three, four and even five voices. The songs are irresistible, the perfect fit for the heatwave of the dance hall or the cool breeze of the park. These five guys have been making a commotion in one way or another since they were kids, and years of making music together have brought them to this: a heartbreak of twang and a bootshake of rock and roll. Union Duke is two fifths city, two fifths country, and one fifth whiskey.

Joe Murphy and the Cajun Blues Band – Joe Murphy is a multi-instrumentalist who sings, plays blues and slide guitar, harmonica and Cajun accordion. Joe has been playing the blues for 40 years and opened for Johnny Lee Hooker and played with Dutch and Garrett Mason.
