At 6pm on Saturday, July 25th, pull your boat up to the Long Lake Town Beach and start off your Saturday night with a healthy dose of Cajun and Zydeco from the bayou to get your blood pumpin’. Then add the sounds of New Orleans R&B and Louisiana rockabilly to the mix of roots rock and blues to cook up the Louisiana dance party known as the Big Easy Playboys.
The Big Easy Playboys are traveling to New York State from New Orleans on a short summer tour and Long Lake is excited to have them. From Louisiana favorites from Jambalya to the Zydeco Boogaloo, folks will be dancing the evening away. The Big Easy Playboys are based in New Orleans, but draw heavily from the Cajun/Zydeco culture thriving all around Louisiana. They incorporate the classic instruments of Cajun accordion and fiddle with the bluesy/roots rock sound of guitars and pulsing drums and gives the listener a dose of music that lives and breathes life into the Big Easy.
The ADK Trading Post will be on site serving up some favorites including Jambalaya, BBQ Pulled Chicken in a Cup and other goodies! Dance the evening away with a belly full of good food!
