Shows scheduled this week at the Blue Moon
 

   

Wednesday May 26th - Cajun Jam - 7PM.

The weekly Cajun jam at the Moon attracts some of the areas best musicians as well as folks from around the globe. Open to all, the jam allows players of all skill levels to sit in and play Cajun tunes the way they used to be played (comme dans l'vieux temps), all acoustic on the back porch.

De temps en temps (from time to time), we have someone host the jam. On other nights, the sessions evolve depending on the musicians playing. It's never scripted and never the same, you never know what's coming next or who might show up.

You don't have to play to enjoy the jam. Have a drink, dance, just kick back, listen and meet folks from all around the world. The jam has become world famous thanks to numerous local, regional and national publications as well as National Geographic France and a featured spot on Radio-Canada Television " Le telejournal".

Happy Hours 5-7PM with 3 for 1 well drinks.


Thursday May 27th - Captain Legendary Band - 8PM - Country

- $3 drink specials all night!

Background Orange StarsThe Captain Legendary Band is what great rock and country used to be. Their style is from a time when music was about songs and lifestyle and not about music just as a business. Their bayou and musical roots obviously run deep with tunes that grove like a 60s peace pipe. They are a delightful combination of the old classic country and rock sound that comes out in their own way. They have a unique sound that is not contrived. It is original and fresh with reflections of the past great days of music.

Friday May 28th - Vagabond Swing & Research Turtles (Rock) -

8PM


Vagabond Swing
Background Orange Stars

The very essence of music lies within the creative blending of classic sounds and modern concepts. Holding to these ideals, the band Vagabond Swing blends acoustic musical tastes from the past and present. With fragrances of old time jazz and swing to modern gypsy aromas, Vagabond Swing rings true. Band members include Jon Stone (Mandolin/Vocals), Jesse Duplechin (Guitar), Roy Durand (Drums/Vocals), Hayden Talley (Bass), and Josh LeBlanc (Trumpet).

Born on the bayou in the musical no-man's-land of Lake Charles, Louisiana, Research Turtles are a bold, visionary rock and roll group that grabs you with their soulful sound and doesn't let you go. Despite their roots down south, the band sounds like an import, with British-invasion influenced riffs and effortlessly harmonized vocals that capture listeners and plunge them straight back to the early days of the Beatles and The Who. Their self-titled debut album, released August of 2009, propels them past the country-and-death-metal-studded swamp of their origin and into the clouds of melodic, pop-infused rock and roll.

Happy Hours 5-7PM with 1/2-priced well drinks!

Research Turtles


Saturday May 29th - Terry & the Zydeco Bad Boys - 8PM

Terry Domingue Accordion and vocals- Since the age of four Terry would stand at the foot of any stage mesmerized by the band playing at the local trail rides he would attend with his father. At age eight, this self-taught accordion player got his first accordion and has been playing since. Growing up around his grandparents Terry had no choice but to learn Creole French. To keep tradition alive he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs in French as well as writing many new ones of his own.



Sunday May 30th - The Viatones - 6PM - Rock


Blayze Viator (age 22) and The Viatones have been drifting around Nashville for over 5 years, staggering into nearly every bar and venue of both decent and ill repute. The band of 11 years has been privileged enough to perform multiple times at every premiere music venue in Nashville (Mercy Lounge, Exit-In, 12th & Porter, 3rd & Lindsley, City Hall, The Trap, The Rutledge etc.) on stages graced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Band, Johnny Cash, John Prine, and many others. In '07 and '09, The Viatones were asked to play at Vanderbilt's Rights of Spring Music Festival, alongside The Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, and many others. Inspired by artists of days long gone, this band marches against the tide, and to the beat of a different drum.
