Boxing Day! = No Music

Boxing day, traditionally the day after Christmas, must be for boxing right?
Regardless, no music at Caves today. Hmmm, probably no boxing either.

A little more Gumbo on your Wednesday

The melodic musical magicians of your local Gumbo band will be returning to LesCaves this Wednesday night from 8-10.  The usual mix of rousing up-tempo, a bit more quiet and occasional silliness will be heard by all.  It's worth the trip just for the beer, but beer AND music? Such a deal.

Revving it to the Gumb line

Gumbo rides again. Southern style. More tunes to the mile.
Running out of rhymes...  Thank goodness.

We're trying to come up with a catchy name for The Gumbo Blog (soon to appear on a BlogSpot near you) and you can help us out. Just come up with a clever suggestion and attach it to a $5 bill and pop it in the tip jar. It's a weighed voting system so heavier bills might improve your chances.
The big winner gets our undying gratitude and a place of honor on the blog.
Also kisses and hugs.
For a small extra fee we'll even forgo the kisses!

Nutin'like a good dose of Gumbo

A truly fine measure of swing and 20th century americana comes once again to LesCaves next Wednesday. For a good seat near two hours of musical bliss get there a few bars early.

A big apology out to Mill About Smartly as we forgot to announce them in this space for last week's performance at Caves. Turned out it didn't matter much as it was packed. Still, sorry anyway... ;-)
