Shows On Our Radar:
Celebrate Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday
with Creole Stomp at
Theatre at the Center on March 5
Check out “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music”
Can't make it down to NOLA this March? How about Munster, IN? Creole Stomp has captured the ears and the feet of Louisiana music fans across North America, including a roof-raising performance at Theatre at the Center in 2018. Led by French-speaking Creole fiddler and accordionist Dennis Stroughmatt, Creole Stomp returns for one exclusive performance on Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday, March 5, 2019, to keep the performance filled with a rollicking mix of contemporary blues, swamp pop, and traditional Cajun and zydeco dance tunes.
Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heat and passion conveyed from the stage – music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band. In fact, over the years the band has become informally known as “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music,” for their well-oiled, dancer-driven, crowd pleasing marathon jams and improvisation. Traditional Louisiana Cajun two-steps, reels, and waltzes sizzle in the stew along with Creole blues and mazurkas.
Individual tickets are $35 for the 7:00 p.m. concert. Student tickets are $20. A Mardi Gras Buffet is available before the concert in the adjoining dining room for an additional $30 plus tax. A limited number of Special Edition T-shirts will be available at the show for sale at $20 each. A Cash Bar will also be available. To purchase individual tickets, call the Box Office at 219-836-3255 or visit www.TheatreAtTheCenter.com.
