In addition, a variety of percussion instruments flavors their New Orleans salsa and drives Mumbo Gumbo's lively dance beats. You definitely won’t sit this one out.

July 17 DAVID JOHN and THE COMSTOCK COWBOYS choose not to travel the crowded highway where music is destined to change at the whim of each generation. Their music is timeless and speaks to all. They perform original music, written by David John, as well as powerful songs about America, when our moral values were honest and strong. In their unique style, they sing about Cowboys, Horses, Soldiers, The Old West, and its’ grandest. This true Cowboy Band hails from Virginia City, Nevada

Aug. 6 TOM RIGNEY and FLAMBEAU is the King here at LACC. This Band returns year after year for very good reasons…which you will find out, if you have never heard them before. Flambeau specializes in fiery Cajun and Zydeco, two-steps, low-down blues, funky New Orleans grooves, and beautiful ballads and waltzes that will break your heart. This band could tear the roof off or maybe knock all the pine needles off the trees. Rigney’s Irish roots makes their musical gumbo that much tastier. Their high-energy definitely draws the audience into their performance like you are a part of the music and the show.
